I love the convenience of this product. No bitter aftertaste. A little goes a long way in hot beverages.

Sweet, without anything else!
I've been using Now Liquid Stevia for years and have found nothing better. I use it mostly in iced and hot tea. I also substitute sugar in oat meal with a few drops of Stevia. There is no aftertaste. Just pure sweetness.

better than others
I like this convenient and affordable way of dispensing Stevia. I use it all the time. I would have given a top rating but I find it hard to know what is the exactly right no. of drops for a cup of coffee for example. I have a 12 oz. cup and use about 9 drops. Cannot go over or under and still must add a tiny bit of powdered swtner to perfect it. When it comes to my coffee, I want it just right. I do not use creamers as they are not healthy but I miss the flavor.

Same quality (I presume) as the brand names in the stores, at a much less price. Also it is water based and not glycerin based.

Bitter Taste in Coffee!
I've been on a mission to find a non-sugar sweetener that does not taste funky in coffee. As an avid coffee drinker/snob, I was hoping based off the reviews on this site that the Now Better Stevia Extract (liquid) would help me get away from using cane sugar in my coffee for good.
Swanson's shipped this promptly and I really love their products and pricing. However, this product tasted bitter; exactly like the powder stevia products. I won't return it as I am sure I can find other uses for it, however if someone can come up or knows of a non-bitter coffee sweetener besides cane sugar, please let me know!

I taste the alcohol in it!
I love the NOW Better Stevia extract powder so I thought I would try the liquid for ease of carrying in a purse and possible more servings per bottle. I tried it, but I taste the alcohol in it!! Going to return it and order more of the powder. The size of the bottle was surprisingly big too. Unless you have a large purse, I can't see taking it with you! Makes me wonder how the swanson's brand is since it is alcohol-free.

just like sugar
I love this product!!! I use it for whipping up whipped cream, in my coffee, to sweeten lemonade and tea. My grandsons cannot tell the difference from using sugar. Once I used powered stevia and they hated it!!!

The Best Stevia that I have used
I love stevia. However, some brands are bitter tasting. Not this one! I use it to sweeten my tea by the cup and by the pitcher. It only takes about 5 drops for a cup and I use a dropper full per qt. I use this product every day and I always order it from Swanson since they have the best price.
If you are on the fence about trying this product, give it a go, it's good!

OK for stevia
I want to like stevia even grow it in my garden but there is something about it that just doesn't agree with me. however my husband and I wanted to start drinking something other than soda so I make up Kool-aid with a 1/4 cup of sugar and 3-4 full dropers of stevia per package. the sugar takes the edge off the stevia for me and my husband who runs for the hills with anything "diet" has not complained. the price is so much better than at the grocery store too.

This is by far the best sweetener. In my double cup mug, I use 4 to 6 drops in my tea. Add about 8 drops to a pitcher of smoothies. This is a great product at the best price around. Always keep a bottle in my desk and a bottle or two at home.

This liquid stevia is great--good price and no bitterness at all. Very concentrated--especially good in hot drinks!

No after taste!
I have tried many other products, including the Truvia, which is supposed to be Stevia. Maybe because the Truvia was powdered, but, I still experienced the fake sweetener after taste. With this product, I was able to sweeten and absolutely NO after taste. I will order more in the future.

I like the fact that this liquid is NOT thick like some are and its not at all bitter.

This is a wonderful product. It sweetens gently but very well. I can add as much as I like and it doesn't get bitter as straight Stevia powder can do. It's convenient to carry with me - even on a plane. I use it all the time!

I used to have to purchase stevia at my health store for twice the price at least! I couldn't believe it when I saw stevia at this price. It makes my ice tea so wonderful! I carry some in my purse for restaurants, etc. I'm very pleased.

Stevia Liquid extract
Excellent product. No bitterness. Water and Alcohol base is better than glycerine base. Water, lemon juice and stevia liquid make an
excellent and healthful drink--8 to 10 drops.

Best form of the liquid variety!
I have used this for years. Prefer it hands down over the brands with no alcohol and only using the vegetable oil base. So messy!
Glad to see you are offering this--Thanks!

Good, but packaging can be better
The top of the bottle around the threads can get sticky from the Stevia and make getting the dropper out of the bottle difficult. The trick is not to screw the dropper on too tight or, simply get the powder.

Best Stevia Ever
This is the best tasting Stevia I have used, and I have tried many brands. Swanson gives the best value on this product- by far.

Stevia can be purchased as leaves to add to bulk teas, as powder, and in a glycerin or alcohol based tincture.
LEAVES are wonderful if you enjoy making your own tea mixtures or to brew with your favorite whole leaf teas.
POWDER is a good choice when baking but doesn't always mix well in teas or coffee.
TINCTURE- ALCOHOL BASED: It travels well, a drop or two is all you need and it mixes effortlessly. I would recommend this alcohol base over the glycerin because the glycerin becomes sticky in the bottle. The alcohol based tincture can not be beaten! Try it in a glass of water and fresh lemon juice, too.

Great in hot tea!!
If you're looking for a low calorie, great tasting way to enjoy your hot tea or coffee, this product is for you! Convenient to use, mixes instantly with no aftertaste! Love it!!

I have been using powdered stevia for a couple of years but decided to try this product. It is muc h easier to measure and use, less waste, and neater than powder. I highly recommend it.
