I have been using Stevia for quite some time now, primarily in my morning coffee. I have always bought the small packets until I saw this and thought I'd give it a try. The color ( light brown) doesn't bother me, however, the grittiness does. Even after stirring, it tends to float on the surface and not dissolve. I try to remember to put the stivia in the cup first, then the coffee, but that doesn't always work either. I get too strong a taste and the grittiness right away. I will not purchase this product again.

Not as good a value as I had hoped...
Although pure (no fillers like maltodextrin, dextrose or fiber) this product is not as "refined" as other pure stevia powders I have used, like Now Foods.
Consequently, I have to use twice as much to get the same sweetness and it has more of a "raw" aftertaste to it as well. Also, when using it to sweeten drink mixes it adds a dark greenish/black color and doesn't stay dissolved so I have to shake the mix up everytime I use it.

100 percent natural stevia
I love that this stevia is green and not white, because it is simply ground leaves without processing!

Not exactly what I expected
I agree with the previous review. I didn't read the description. I'm sure there are uses for the whole plant leaf but I was looking for the real thing. I did try it and there was some mild sweetness and no after taste.

Love this stevia!
We love this stevia because the taste is good and it is so convenient to use. It dissolves easily in our drinks and has no after taste, just a lovely sweetness.

Not for tea or coffee
This product is dark green in color and has a "woody" taste. It does not dissolve completely in boiling water and leaves a sediment in the bottom of the cup. This is not what I expected from a stevia product.
