Lol, IDK how this one will turn out. Someone had mentioned making some other mead out of tea so I figured I'd try it out with some spare honey I have. Coca tea is made from the Coca plant, yes, the plant used to make Cocaine.
It has very trace amounts (1kg of leaves, an enormous amount, makes 1 "hit"). The tea is a Peruvian specialty and is locally served EVERYWHERE. I fell in love with the stuff when I went there, and it'll taste great with honey!
20 Coca teabags (legal to import into the US)
2.5lbs Wildflower honey
1/5th pkg AHS Sweet Mead Pack
1/4 tsp Fermax Yeast Nutrient
1/2tsp Yeast Energizer
1pkg Lavlin D47
I figure 8oz of water per tea bag. If you get coca leaves (no bags), figure on around .5-1gram per serving
Brew 20 bags of tea in water. I boiled the bags for just a minute just to kill anything in them. The bags came from bolivia.. so who knows.
Let it cool with the bags in there, remove the bags, add the honey, put in the primary, aerate, add nutrients, energizer, and yeast. Forget about it for 6 months.
