Green tea and bubbles don’t mix for everyone. Stil, in 2019 Coca-Cola released a new brand of Coke to consumers in Japan infused with extract of this leaf.

Coca-Cola Ginger

According to Mashable, Coca-Cola released its limited edition Ginger-flavour Coke to Australia back 2016. While it’s been available overseas for several years, South Africans would probably just buy a Stoney!
