I'd like to teach the world to steep ...

The cola wars battle in anime. New this week in Japan: green tea-flavored Coca-Cola. That sounds like either ... mixing tea with coffee, or a vast improvement on an omnipresent beverage-slash-American cultural icon.

So says MSNBC: "It contains tea antioxidants called catechins, leaves a slight green tea aftertaste and is mainly targeted at health-conscious women in their 20s and 30s."

Rival soda giant Pepsi is planning to counter with Pepsi Shiso. Shiso is an herb, kind of minty, sort of basily. Again, I both cringe and crave it.

Anybody know how to get some of these?
