*stevia leaf tea is made with the real dried leaves of stevia (like any herbal tea). Buy it in the bulk tea section of Corners. Steep stevia in a
pot, let it cool before use. Try steeping stevia in a teapot with your white/green/or black tea, it makes a fabulous tea to drink with the cake. If you are taking medicines closely monitored by your doctor, consult your healthcare provider before starting an intensive chia seed therapy program. Any soluble fiber source in sufficient quantity may delay the delivery of your medications. Chia seeds are a source of soluble fiber.
