I've never heard of or tried a blend of Pu-erh and Yerba mate, but I could imagine such a blend working quite well.

I also could see it going in radically different directions, based on whether cooked / shu Pu-erh or raw / sheng Pu-erh were used, and based on whether the mate were green or roasted, aged or un-aged.

I'd personally imagine that Shu Pu-erh would probably blend well with roasted yerba mate, and sheng pu-erh perhaps more with green yerba mate, but that's just my intuition.

They are made by Matte Leao and are the red/rosa ones. They say pu-erh on the packet but doesn't say it contains anything other than yerba mate.

intriguing infusion indeed. I'd be curious to try some if given a chance.
I imagine it would be a very strong earthly taste.

In teavana is mango puerh mate and the flavor isn´t good, I tried 4 times, I will blend myself mate and pu-erh only, the flavor will be good (without mango and curry like teavana). :D
