What we are seeing is the positive effect of HCL on the beverage market. Companies are coming up with new drinks containing less than 6g of sugar and marketing them around healthy lifestyle.
What Mini Me thinks
After tasting them for myself, the Mango and Pandan has a much better taste but the panda taste is rather muted. The Jasmine and Lychee flavour makes a strange combination and there is an astringent taste of tea.
