Club Mate Cola

Club Mate Cola

As I stated in my review of it, to me Club Mate is a staple German soda. It's carbonated yerba mate, and it's done right. It doesn't taste weird or off. It’s probably because they use sugar and not an abundance of it.

I anticipated this being the original mixed with cola, but all I taste is the cola. I don't notice the mate at all. When I mentioned it to someone local they didn’t even realize that it even had mate in it at all. It's quite a nice cola, so I have no complaints on that end, but I did want some mate. I guess it’s just in there for the caffeine. Perhaps if I could read German it would all be explained to me by the label, but as I am a dumb American and cannot I will remain in the dark, and just enjoy it as the stand out cola that it is.

Club Mate

Club Mate

To me this is a classic German soda. It's a sweetened, carbonated yerba mate tea and it's done right. Things can very easily go wrong when you carbonate tea, but this company managed to do it right. It's sweet, but not overly so, and it actually has an authentic mate taste. It’s actually probably the best carbonated tea I have ever tried.

I drank way more of this than I’m proud to admit on my recent three week journey to Europe. I mean it’s chock full of caffeine and I needed it to help reset my internal clock due to the six hour time difference. Now I’m back home and I keep waking up at 6am. I need some reverse Club Mate.
