Japanese beverage company Suntory has releases a colorless tea “Suntory Natural Water Premium Morning Tea” on September 26, 2017 and it has its milk tea ver. and lemon tea ver.
Suntory’s new products made people surprised because its taste is entirely tea but its color is transparent. According to Suntory, they extract an ingredient from tea leaves and make it happen in reality.
Surprisingly, it’s not allowed to drink anything except for water at a office in old-fashioned Japanese companies because it’s considered informal. So Suntory wanted to meet that kind of needs by people who want to drink milk tea or lemon tea but aren’t allowed.
Actually flavored water was sold by some companies. The representative is Irohas water. It has released a flavor of orange, apple, peach, lemon and grape. But uncolored milk tea frighten people because people couldn’t imagine transparent milk.
Uncolored coffee named Clear Coffee has also been released in London. This coffee doesn’t include artificial ingredients, 100 percent natural. In near future, uncolored beer or wine might be developed.
