Green U Energy Drink is a carbonated concoction made with lemon-lime flavored sparkling green tea. The flavor is light on tea flavor, but has plenty of sugar and lemon-lime taste to it, resulting in something that is both unique and pleasing to the palate. Green U's source of energy is also quite unique -- it comes from carbohydrates and green tea and has no caffeine (added or natural) in the formula. Overall, what's inside the can is both original and very enjoyable. On the outside of the can, things are a little muddled. Upon first looking at this product, it's difficult to tell what it actually is and what it's called. Using the popular two-panel can design with silver and green, the can looks like any another energy drink. However, there are a variety of elements fighting for you eye and we think that consumers will be left scratching their heads over this one. Still, the product tastes superb and we hope they can clean up the can and make it look a bit more clean and original in future production runs.
