The levels of Stevia you use in sweetening your beverages, baking and cooking can vary greatly from person to person. The differences in taste depend on a combination of your genetics (taste buds) and the amounts of sugar or sugar substitutes you grew up with. If you get a bitter or metallic taste it is likely because you used TOO MUCH sweetener. Even one drop can take you from satisfyingly sweet to yuck.
Whenever you switch brands or manufacturers, you will probably have to adjust the quantities you are used to using. Start off with smaller quantities and slowly work up to the amount you like.
