Any Club-Mate drinkers out there in the NYC area?

It is being imported from Germany special for anyone that may want the high caffeine drink Club-Mate. For those familiar with it from overseas, you may post as to your like/dislikes of the beverage and what you think about it overall.

This link was the first I got wind of this and forgot to mention it before or forgot that I DID mention it before?

I'm not in the NY area and I don't drink just wanted to stop by and say hi, neat article.

I just discovered, with lemonie's help, that this is not a malted drink, but a bottled TEA (Yerbe tea to be exact), so it's name is taken from that. It is fairly high in caffeine and very low in carbs, making it a perfect high energy drink (if one did not have to import it from Germany......which ups the price a wee bit :-)

Lemonie also pointed me in the direction of a good ible on Yerbe Mate tea :-)

It's beer with caffeine in it? Are you being irresponsible or informative? L

It is a malt extract meaning it shouldn't have any but a minute bit of alcohol left in it. It is a popular hacker drink because of it's high caffeine content and it's super low carbohydrate content. Gives you the motivation to keep moving, without making you fat :-)
The low sugar content makes it much superior to the Monster drinks (and other caffeinated sodas) .
Ah, I was thinking of the people in the office talking about the ill-effects of vodka & Red Bull - this looks like a crate of beer. Thanks for putting me right on that.

I can't find much on the stuff at all

Apparently it was a BIG favorite at the Last HOPE conference in NYC this past year from what I've heard. It also seems rather difficult to get hold of from what they were saying about it. :-)
I can find references in German pages, but nothing UK. Which considering our proximity to Germany is a bit odd. L

Interesting: wikipedia has this to say about it - & - Energy Field has a bit to say about it.
There is mention of it out there for instance, at MightyOhm but you are right in that is doesn't seem to be well documented.
