Stevia leaves have been used as a natural zero calorie sweetener for decades in countries like Japan and Paraguay. Almost everyone has a different way of using stevia leaves. Some prefer using fresh stevia leaves, whereas some prefer dried stevia leaves. However, it must be noted that fresh leaves take 3-6 months for maturity with abundant sunshine and are not as sweet as dried stevia leaves. And just like we don’t grow Tea or Coffee in our homes, it is a good idea to buy fully matured whole dried Stevia leaves from a good brand for best results. Whole dried Stevia leaves can be stored in an airtight container in our kitchens for up to a year.
We recently tried different ways in which you can use Magicleaf Stevia Dried Leaves. Our dried stevia leaves are perfect to sweeten your beverages, including tea, coffee, lemonade, and more.
Without further ado, let us look at the ways you can use dried stevia leaves.
# Method 1: Hot Brew (Sweet decoction):
