|AngelaKe||As for me I just can't drink my coffee without adding some sugar. It's pity. Addiction maybe) But what about tea things are much better - no sugar and OK!|

I'm not a fan of stevia. Nevertheless, here are the United Nations World Health Organization's findings on stevia safety:
The United Nations World Health Organization has found that a daily intake of 4 mg of steviol glycosides per kilogram of body weight, for up to 4 weeks, has shown no adverse effects (see pages 183 to 219 of their report: http://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/1...660600_eng.pdf )
For a 110 lb. (50 kg) person, the UNWHO's findings translate to a maximum daily intake of 200 mg of steviol glycosides (for up to 4 weeks). Because steviol glycosides are 150 times sweeter than sugar (https://link.springer.com/article/10...:1008134420339 ), 200 mg of steviol glycodes are considered to be equivalent to 30 grams (about 7 U.S.-standard packs) of sugar.

I expected more from Stevia, too but it really just tastes like Aspartam...

|Some Guy||Instead of making my coffee and tea sweet, I eat something naturally sweet, like fruit and chase it with the coffee or tea. That way, the drink is a nice contrast to the sweet taste of the fruit. Eventually, your tastes will change and you will stop expecting things like coffee and tea to taste so sweet.|

The fresh leaves were better, but still not good.

silva, stevia is NOT an artificial sweetener. It is derived from the leaves of a real plant. The Guarani peoples of South America have been using it as a sweetener for over 400 years.

Boy I wish I liked stevia! I've tried so many varieties, including the one you referenced! It tastes chemical to me, like all the artificial sweeteners. Zevia tasted horrid. I also taste cilantro like soap!!!
Another good read is the book "Salt, Sugar, Fat" on the marketing of gluttony and disease.

I've quit adding cane sugar to all the cups of coffee and tea that I drink and I've managed to do that without depriving my sweet tooth. I now add stevia to those beverages. Stevia is a 0-calorie sweetener that is extracted from the leaves of a natural plant. This plant is native to South America.
When I buy stevia, I prefer the SweetLeaf brand because their products are all-natural. SweetLeaf's stevia also has a non-glycemic response. That means that it is safe to be consumed by people who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
