Stevia source

by garden gal » Jan 26th 06 3:51 pm

For those on the chat the other night, I was refilling my little stevia jar so I looked at the label that I kept on it. For those that wanted to know where I had gotten it from.
Absolutely nothing in it for me- in fact I haven't even ordered from them in 4 yrs but they are still online. I bought a lb of dried leaf- don't use very often but have been throwing a leaf in with my tea now when I brew. I also bought 1/2 lb of powdered extract which I have used a LOT. It looks like powdered sugar so you get a lot for 1/2lb plus you need so little. It will need refilled soon but I use it to replace 1/2 the sugar in all liquid type recipes (ice cream, kool-aid for the kids, husband's tea) and I use it to replace 1/4 the sugar in cookies, cakes, breads, etc. plus I use only it in my teas. It goes a loooong way.
Just FYI

Has anyone else noticed a slight latency when ordering from I've seen enough reviews on the Internet to know that it is indeed a legitimate reseller, however I placed an order for stevia a few days ago and basically got an email only saying "your order number is *" and that was the last I heard of it. I haven't even been charged yet, and the site doesn't seem to have any place to enter that number to check the status of the order.

Does anyone know if the store is still open for business, or if their site is just a shadow from the past?

I'll post an update if/when my situation changes.

I can stevia in the health food section of my grocery store (where they also carry small bottles of ten tea, bottled revolution tea, and a local organic & free trade bottled tea)

I said that I would post an update. Today I finally got a UPS shipping number. I had ordered on Thursday and today's Monday, however, since the online shop and UPS are closed on the weekend, I have to take that into consideration and say that everything is on time so far. I still would have preferred at least a confirmation of shipment on Friday, though.

I was going to check the health food isle of a small store in my area called "Bashas", however, I have reason to believe that the products on herbaladvantage are cheaper (at least in bulk) and of a higher quality (as with most products from just about any reputable online store).

If not, I'll be posting another update :wink:

You can also order stevia from

They are fantastic provider of bulk herbs and other things including press and brew tea bags (if you want to make your own!)
