But chemical is a good way of describing the taste.
I've never tried the Sweet Leaf brand of Stevia, but I've heard tons of people rave about it. Mainly because that's the brand that adds some flavorings to it. But the flavorings mean they add other shit in. Which means they probably add shit into their regular product. So that's why I haven't been too eager to try their products.
And yeah, chemical is about the best way I've found to describe the taste of Stevia.
The bf did do a bit of a blind taste test on me with it. He mixed up some raw sucralose in water and some stevia powder in water and had me taste both of them. To begin with, I couldn't really tell the difference (small sips of it). But after a few sips, I could start to differentiate that chemical-like aftertaste of the stevia from the raw sucralose. So even dissolved in water, it's got a hint of that yucky taste, but the more you mix it into something, the less that taste comes out.
