    Hi Mel, I am afraid it is not on the approved food list. You can however use stevia to sweeten your tea.

    be careful about stevia. most of them are processed and have chemicals added. if you see inulin or erythritol on the ingredient list – stay away. i have found only 2 that are safe after researching on and off over the last year. just one made by sweet leaf, although all their other stevias have those chemicals. and another by wisdom. all of the flavored stevias have these dangerous added ingredients. i started using stevia over a decade ago and even bought the plant once, and ground it into green powder myself to try. i was shocked to learn about the added ingredients most stevia has as part of the processing and how inulin can create the same effect as carbs/sugars in your body. i only discovered and confirmed by contacting the manufacturer. check it out…

    thanks for that. I only use Organic stevia myself. I do like Sweet leaf and do use it but very sparingly.
    I have learned to drink tea with out any sweetener just some lemon.
