My husband, Ali, was researching about restaurants in Japan and came across one called KinMATA.
I read it as Kintama.. and I thought.. Kintama…hmm it sounds familiar.. Kintama? KINTAMA?!
Yes Kintama.. 金玉 means golden egg and is a Japanese slang for Testicles!! I don’t know why I remember words like this..
In Chinese, the translation of Kintama is ‘Golden Jade’. So it was ok for Coca Cola (Singapore) to have a drink called 金玉茶 aka Kintama Tea aka Testicle Tea aka Golden Jade Tea. HAHAHA
Here is a picture of it
My friend from Japan bought a few cans to give it to his friends as souvenirs.
I think word got around and they changed the name of the tea. What a pity!
