We have the BEST "sweet" tea!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SteviaClear Liquid Stevia Extract, 2-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 2) (Grocery)
I'm a Southern girl, so sweet tea is very important in our house. ;) We go through a couple gallons a day, year-round. I'm also a t2 diabetic, so consuming that much sugar is a pretty bad idea. We used Splenda for a while, but I wasn't thrilled with giving my little kids a bunch of artificial sweeteners. I picked up a bottle of SteviaClear at our local health food store and secretly started using it to make our tea (my husband is a little resistant to change ... shhhh!). He never would have known if he hadn't seen me making tea one day, but now says that, while our tea is sweet, it's sweet and refreshing, not cloyingly sweet like tea made with lots of sugar. We are devoted converts to SteviaClear, and buying through this vendor saves us about HALF what we were paying at the local hfs.

I'm a southern girl too, and I'm curious as to how much liquid stevia you would use to sweeten a gallon of tea at a time. I put it in my coffee and tea on a glass by glass basis but it would be so much easier to just do the whole gallon at once. (PS - I like SWEET sweet tea). Thanks.

For a gallon of tea, I used to use about a tablespoon (I believe). I like sweet sweet tea too. I also like that I can use the cold brew teabags with this since you don't need the hot water to get the sugar to dissolve well. I don't use this product anymore, though- I had it on subscribe and save and they kept telling me it was out of stock... looks like it wasn't out of stock but they bumped the price and didn't want to sell it for the old amount or something. I was getting really grossed out by the floating fuzzies in it too-I work in a lab and accidentally cultured a giant ball of fungus that looked just like it :( Yechh!

I found out, after trial and error that the white floating stuff was my own fault. I am a bit OCD and would make sure the dropper was filled all the way up to the bubble at the top. The liquid that was up there would never be used until the very end so it just sat up there and did it's thing. Since I stopped doing that, and just left the liquid in the dropper only to the level of liquid in the bottle, I have not had this problem any more.
