    As always, the 1 lb dried stevia I bought arrived quickly and is the fresh, real thing. After several years of doing business with Mountain Maus I have grown to completely trust them-- invaluable resource with so many suppliers out there selling who-knows-what-it-is and who-knows-how-old-it is.
