This is an amazing, delicious product. We drink it as a tea and it's fresh and sweet and has NO bitter aftertaste whatsoever!

I recommend this product wholeheartedly.

Infusion of stevia
by Delvon on Dec 6, 2013

How would I undergo the infusion or syrup process of the leaf stevia. Would you mind explaining the steps involved?

    Re: Infusion of stevia
    by Bulk Herb Store on Dec 9, 2013

    Hello,
    To make a Stevia liquid extract you can take the leaves crush them slightly and the make a tea with them. Don't use boiling water just hot water to steep the leaves for about 5 minutes. Strain all herbs out and there you have a liquid Stevia extract. Thanks!

shelf life
by Shawna on Oct 13, 2013

I am the only person in my household and am wondering on the shelf life of many of the dried herbs, in particular stevia. Can I buy a large amount and feel comfortable in storing it, perhaps for many months or even years?

    Re: shelf life
    by Bulk Herb Store on Oct 15, 2013

    Hello,
    The recommended shelf life for herbs is 2 years as they can start to lose their potency. Thanks!

Stevia
by Evelyn on Sep 6, 2013

i have been reading lots of info on sweeteners, like agave and stevia. There were some comment that stevia has side effects that make your body open to metabolic syndrome. Do you have any experience or knowledge on this? I use a brand of stevia that has only grapeseed extract and distilled water and stevia. I am also confused on agave. SO much conflicting info. Have you found anything definitive? Thank you and God bless. Evelyn

    Re: Stevia
    by Bulk Herb Store on Sep 18, 2013

    Hello,
    Thank you for your comment. Since we do not sell agave, I do not know much about it. With the stevia, we have not had or heard of any side affects. It is a natural dried herb. Every one can react differently to certain herbs. But I do not believe that using this would be bad in any way.

Stevia amazing
by Eliane on Aug 8, 2013

I am so glad that BHS provide Stevia so fresh.,I use it in my tea and I can do my own infusion. I am just so glad that I finally founded your store. And stevia also helped me with my craving for cakes, cookies, and chocolate. I'm used to eat just dark chocolate but now I can pass by. Very good herb to have.

Where is it grown?

    Re: Where is it grown?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jul 16, 2013

Stevia Leaf
by Anonymous on May 8, 2013

I brew tea[s] by the batch and want to add some stevia leaves for sweetness during the brewing process. What would you suggest the ratio be? I brew 2 quarts at a time and use about 1/2 cup of tea mix.

    Re: Stevia Leaf
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 10, 2013

    It just depends on how sweet you want it. I would prob. start with 1 tsp. or a little more of the stevia herb, and if it is not to your liking you can add more or less.

Stevia Tea
by Silverio on May 7, 2013

I recently heard about the beneficial affects of stevia. I bought a half a pound of it, and I am wondering how exactly to make it. Should it be in the mornings? How many times a day? And how to prepare it. Please, all and any answers are appreciated.

    Re: Stevia Tea
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 10, 2013

    It is usually used in beverages and or food as a sweetener. You can add a few leaves to a cup of tea or other drink. Or you can make a strong infusion or "syrup" and add according to your taste! You can use it at any time of the day as often as you want.

Liquid stevia
by Shanon on Apr 27, 2013

I read you can "tincture" stevia herb and then heat off the alcohol. Sounds like the store bought stuff to me.
I'm going to try it, as store bought is NOT natural. Coca cola and Pepsi own trivia brand and there are 40 steps and chemicles to process it. No thanks!

DIABETICS & STEVIA
by CAROL on Apr 13, 2013

Since I have to count all my carbs, how would you count Stevia in grams of sugar or carbs?

    Re: DIABETICS & STEVIA
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 30, 2013

    Sorry, I wasn't able to find any information on that!

Question
by Kaylin on Mar 12, 2013

It says that stevia has very little aftertaste. Why is it that I've heard that it tastes bitter?

    Re: Question
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 26, 2013

    Hello! I have used the Stevia several times and it's sweet but its never tasted bitter to me or anyone else that I know of. The Best way to find out is to try it!

how to use stevia herb?
by Kathy on Mar 8, 2013

I currently use Stevia packets to sweeten tea, add to protein shakes, etc. How do I use the bulk, dried Stevia? Same way? thanks

    Re: how to use stevia herb?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 23, 2013

    You can try grinding it to a powder to use but we put it in our loose leaf teas to sweeten!

Stevia
by Kelli on Feb 20, 2013

I currently use sweet leaf stevia so I'm used to it being in sugar-like form. How do you use the cut herb? Do you grind it before using for baking and things like lemonade?

    Re: Stevia
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 18, 2013

    For use in cooking or cold drinks, you can try making a strong infusion or syrup and add to your recipes but you won't need to add near as much as regular sugar! In hot drinks you can just steep a small amount of the leaves with your teas!

Stevia
by Kara on Feb 20, 2013

I recently bought some Stevia Herbs. I am in need of how to use it while cooking. I am new to using herbs and am not really sure how to use this particular herb. Any and all suggestions you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you. Kara

Stevia
by Kara on Feb 14, 2013

I am a baby in the world of going natural and would like to know how you would use the cut, organic stevia? Do you put it in a food processor and use like sugar in drinks, etc.? I am making homemade toothpaste and it calls for stevia and didn't know if I should be looking for a powder like you can buy in the stores or what. Thank you for any assistance you can give me. Kara

    Re: Stevia
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 18, 2013

    Please read comment above. Also, in the toothpaste, we usually use our cut stevia leaves!

Question
by Ela on Feb 7, 2013

Can you grind up the leaves to use like sugar, or should it be steeped it along with the tea leaves?

    Re: Question
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 15, 2013

    You can try grinding it up, however it will probably work better to just add a small amount of the leaves in with your tea.

stevia do you make your own tincture
by Bonnie on Jan 31, 2013

wondering if you just use leaves for teas, or if you also have made a stevia condensed form for coffee, bake goods...

    Re: stevia do you make your own tincture
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 12, 2013

    Yes for teas we usually throw a small amount of the loose leaves in. For coffee or baking you can try making a strong infusion and add to your coffee etc.

Stevia
by Evelyn on Dec 14, 2012

How do I use this and get it to a form I can use in my tea, coffee, etc? Thanks!

    Re: Stevia
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 22, 2013

    For a tea, you can just throw a small amount of the leaves in with your tea. For coffee, you can make a strong infusion and add to your coffee according to your taste.

How to use?
by Amber on Nov 29, 2012

How would you use this herb in baking, instead of the white powder (Stevia extract)?

    Re: How to use?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 22, 2013

    You can try grinding it in a powder, or make it into a syrup by boiling 2 cups water and add 1tsp. of the stevia herb that you powdered, reduce temperature to simmering and simmer until it has reduced and thickened to the consistency of a syrup. Strain with a cheese cloth after it has cooled.

Stevia Question
by Michelle on Jun 15, 2012

What is the difference between the Stevia herb and the Stevia that you can by in the store on the baking isle?

    Re: Stevia Question
    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 21, 2012

    Glad you asked! The stevia we carry here is still packed full of nutrients and completely organic which means no chemicals or harsh treatment! Most of the stevia you find in stores are not organic and hardly have any nutritional value left!
