Yes this is Stevia -- the plant and it is to die for!!!!!!
I am a tea drinker!   I don't drink coffee.  Never been to a coffee shop in my life!!!   Yes it is tea and tea at home for US!!   Yes Tom is a tea drinker too!!!  We are so well matched!!!!!!  We love the same things always!!
We gave up sugar years ago now!! I think it was 09 in January we gave up sugar!!  I like sweet tea--- what to do??????  STEVIA was my answer.
Stevia has these really sweet leaves!!!  I crush up a few leaves in my tea and it is SO  SO SOOOOO
good!!!  No calories too!!!!
The plant is so easy to grow!!  It spreads and it comes back every year all on its own!!  We have given many plants away of this for people who need to give up sugar!!

Love from me to you, Fern


  1. Wow it sure is looking good

  2. Yes, I'm working hard...hahahahaha This is interesting..I just bought a book on NO SUGAR!! I'm going to try this idea!

  3. Wow, that looks beautiful. Nice substitution for you as well. :)

  4. Your stevia plant looks beautiful, Fern!

    Love ya lots♥

  5. Sweet and pretty is a good combination!

  6. I love Stevia, I can't remember the last time I bought sugar so I guess it's been years. I'm going to our Farmers' Market this weekend and that's one of the plants I'll be looking for. I like my coffee black but I also like sweet tea and Stevia is the way to go.

  7. Never knew it was that easy! We use stevia-related sweetener at our home (Truvia, Sugar in the Raw, etc.) but never even gave it a thought about growing it at home. Thanks for the tip!

  8. I'm glad for having stevia products. I hope we will find our own plant once too and I hope it will look so fabulous and healthy like yours!

  9. Hi Fern, we've never even heard of stevia but it sounds excellent especially for those people wanting to give up or cut down on their sugar. Have a great weekend to you both. No worries, and love, Carol and Stella and Rory

  10. I did not know that all you had to do was crunch some leaves? That is so cool!
