Club-Mate is a German club beverage that basically consists of lightly-carbonated, lightly-sweetened, heavily caffeinated tea. Somehow it was adopted by the German and Austrian hacker scene as their official staying-up-late-and-coding beverage. Open Mate is the first hacked Club-Mate. Thanks to open sourcing the resipes a lot of variants exist (see below).
