Made with activated charcoal, this dark black drink not only looks mysteriously cool but also apparently comes with several detoxifying health benefits. In addition to relieving nasty hangovers, it is also touted as being able aid with any other gastrointestinal issues you might have.

While it's not huge in the States (yet), it's already a hit across the UK and parts of Asia including Indonesia.

If you're in New York, you can find a charcoal black sesame latte on the menu at The Good Sort in Chinatown.

But before you hop on the charcoal latte bandwagon, remember that activated charcoal's detoxifying properties are also strong enough that it's used for drug overdoses and poisoning.

"Activated charcoal is non-discriminative and therefore can remove beneficial nutrients or even more critically, medications," Michelle McGuinness, a dietitian and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, told "Anyone who takes medication should avoid the consumption of activated charcoal."
