Using Stevia in Tea

This is my first season growing stevia and I had a bumper crop. The only thing is I am not fond of the leafy substance floating in my tea. Are there ways to process it to a liquid or powder? The picture is after I harvested.

You can strain it or make a small bag. Put it in the bag, good luck.

Wow I had no Idea that they grew that big mine is only 6 inches tall, I had to bring it in the house before it froze.

I live in Spokane WA Is there any one else that grows them in WA? Marcia

Have you tried putting the fresh leaves in a blender with a little bit of water and then straining it?

After I dried my leaves I put them in a dry blade blender (I have a Vitamix that I also grind wheat with). This reduced the leaves to a powder mixture that is very sweet so just a bit is needed.
