#65: Quick Recap

Click the image to see a full resolution version.

A few stores near the university carry mate iced tea called Club-Mate. A few of my costudents really like it, so out of curiosity I got a bottle. It smells like dirt, and tastes the part. Ew. Just ew. It’s also not pronounced like the word meaning “friend”. Muh-tay, more or less. I think.

Health and stuff aside, I’m so sticking with Coke and Relentless.

    “Mate” is actually a kind of tea really popular in certain central and south american countries, specifically Argentina, IIRC. I’ve never had it (because I don’t drink tea), but it is apparently very bitter. It’s likely that this is what that brand of iced tea either is or is referencing.

      Made from the same plant, unless whoever makes this iced tea is lying and actually putting dirt in there.
      I hope I offended a great many Argentinians with that.
