Okay, I think I knee jerked and went with too much leaf. No matter how little I steep it, all I am getting is bitterness and a bad after taste. Less is definitely more. No me gusta.
3 tsp/16 ounces water in my ingenuiTEA.

2 steeps in and no better.

Hrmm.. that’s too bad! How long were you steeping? One trick to using more-tea-less-water is to do very short steepings (just 5-10-20 seconds or so). Bottom line, though, if you like it a certain way and it tastes good for you like that, then go for that one!
