Stevia tastes like cardboard to me. If you quit using sugar and sweeteners, eventually your taste buds quit expecting everything to taste sweet, and unsweetened beverages start to taste good again.

Because stevia is not an artificial sweetener.

It is a plant that's in the ragweed family. You might be fine with it most of the year but have a reaction to it in ragweed season when your body would get overloaded.

I only use a little bit of stevia once in a while if something is too bitter for me. Or I put a little bit of real sugar in with it. And I am allergic to ragweed but never had a reaction to stevia.
