Colorless Milk Tea by Suntory

I tried the colorless Suntory Milk tea a few months back when I went to Japan. I was ecstatic to find it in the convenience store at the arrival area in Narita and promptly got a bottle. Took a few photos just before I boarded the bus to Tokyo.

I was only able to sample the clear milk tea when I got back from work that evening. I was thinking at the back of my mind that maybe when I pour it in a glass it will magically turn into its usual light brown color. It didn't. Here's a video when I sampled the drink.

Anyway, maybe I expected too much from the drink, but I was a bit disappointed with how it tasted. It did taste like milk tea but there was something missing and I couldn't put my finger on what it was. I just thought that maybe something was lost when it was processed to be clear. I'm also not too comfortable with the idea that there were additional processes made to achieve its colorless state.

It was a fun experience for me though and I had other family/friends try it out too. Their assessment was the same though -- something lacking.
