Too Sweet?

Is it possible for something to be too sweet? It's not often that I string these two words together. Tonight I tried Stevia for the first time in my iced tea. I used the tiny little scoop that came in the bottle and OMG it's SWEET, it's (gasp) too sweet. I had to keep adding more tea to dilute it. I've been trying to control my sweet tooth and get used to food and drinks without being so sweet. I tried Stevia simply to add a hint of sweetness not an overwhelming amount. Obviously I'm going to need to work on this.

On a side note, I just had a piece of toasted Ezekial bread with organic peanut butter, neither of which has sugar (in any form) in the ingredients and I loved it. There's hope for me.
