Trying Yerba Mate as a bittering agent in my primitive brews, about 1 tbsp of the crushed dried leaf in a nylon mesh bag stuck into the top of the 1/2 gallon apple-juice bottle I use for brewing and carbonation. Enough leaches out at ambient temperature to give a zing to the brew. I can't really call it "beer" though.
