Flavored stevia

I’m thinking about starting my own instant chai business selling my chai concoctions and I’d love to make flavored stevias (using stevia in crystal form like Truvia), does anyone have any ideas about how to go about doing this and flavors to use? Definitely will be doing vanilla.

Another question relating to my chai business- Til I get my website up where people can order directly from me, does anyone have any ideas as to where I could sell my products? Etsy is the only one I can think of at the moment.

You can also use Tea Trade. Good luck with your new adventure.

It’s still in the REALLY early stages yet. I made a cup and was like “Holy crap. I should sell this!” lol

I’m also looking for an organic powdered milk alternative that isn’t soy or cow’s milk since some people are allergic.

Rice milk.

There will always be people who are allergic to one thing or another. You could consider offering a couple of different versions that would appeal to people who have allergies, or who choose to eat a certain way (vegetarian/vegan.)

I also wanted to add to what Rachel mentioned. teatra.de is great because you could do a very small (like 1-2 serving) sample size to get feedback and see how things go. You don’t have to have the full package ready to go. I’ve never sold anything on teatra.de, but I can confirm that buying from it is really easy.

QuiltGuppy, yes I will be doing a TON of different variations (you should see the list that I have made lol)… I wish I could find powdered almond milk. My milk choices alone will be: none, dairy of different fat contents, lactose free, rice, coconut, soy, goat, and malted. I’ve found a lot of powdered flavorings on Amazon so I’m thinking of going that route instead of flavoring stevia.
