Over a millennia ago, the Guarani people of Paraguay discovered a native plant with delicious green leaves and an incredibly sweet taste. When they added these dried leaves to a bitter-tea drink or tincture, the leaves of this plant sweetened the taste while adding inadvertent health benefits. This was the modern-day sugar of these ancient people and is now gaining favor once again as a more health conscious alternative to refined sugar.
