hi yes they are differant
The web site I was in has kinda disapeared. but it was in with a list of sites like bouncing bear. I had looked at it for stevia and I notice that one had stevia , russian stevia ,and salvia all listed as same which they are not . I would think they just used exerts from both and didn't bother to keep seperate. Any way I do know that the stevia that I grow from mexico will drop B P fast and low. They both have a licorice taste. and are sweeter than sugar. I don't know any more about the russian except it is confussed with the mexico stevia .

Both the licorice and the stevia likely contain the same chemical. Both contain a non sugar sweetener and taste like licorice. From what I can find, the russian licorice holds nearly all of the flavorings in the root system, whereas what you are describing keeps quite a bit in the leaves. Time will tell what similarities they have. Give me a few months and hopefully I'll have a result.

hi
When I first started to grow stevia it was for the replacement of sugar. It was also banned in usa as food suplament. Then I happened on the site about out of body and etc. and wife didn't want to mess with it . Now it is legal. and I'm growing some and I use it sparingly as a sweetner. Sense we have found the mix up on web sites we are thinking of adding a little to tobacco to see differance in taste. She likes the taste of what she is rolling now. Just as experiment to see if can be better. She has only tasted it by amount on wet toothpick.
Any Ideas?
Lee

alcohol is likely better for extracting flavors and essential oils, and is whats generally used in extracts. (that or glycerine)

just soaking in water will give you tea ;)

I'd never really thought of doing anything with chocolate mint, might try that.
I also have seeds around for "menthol mint", which is supposed to have a stronger, more pungent menthol flavor... might be good too :D

EDIT: also, I'm not sure that adding stivia will be the same as adding sugar. it doesn't have the same consistency as sugar and might not react the same way.
