Attempting to make Club Mate at home, because it's impossible to find in the United States. Attempt one:
1. Cold brew mate tea in a french press overnight. Did not measure
2. Add 16g of sugar for every 240mL of liquid
Results: tastes pretty good but it's not Club Mate.
Next revision will incorporate citric acid and will substitute some of the sugar for high fructose corn syrup.
@pounce already drank it
just wondering because i love mate but also im bad at coldbrewing tea
also never tried carbonating something before, but i do like carbonated mate
@pounce (1) put mate & water in a french press. Be generous with the mate. (2) put french press in fridge (3) wait at least 24 hours
have you ever had mate in a gourd
it's p yummy esp by the third steep
@pounce unfortunately not, but someday I'd like to try it
@sir club mate is the worst of mate ice tea brands and whatever you created probably tasted better
@sir Is it actually cold brewed originally? I tried to replicate Mio Mio many times but never managed to get rid of bitterness.
@barthalion I think they use mate extract for club mate, but it's kind of sketchy to obtain cause there's lots of homeopathic bullshit
@johnfocker step one is to recreate the drink, step two is to refactor out the sugar
