I really want to do this, so I'm trying a few different recipes and going to see if it was maybe just last night or what. I hope I can figure this out
Aww, that stinks. How much did you use? I only use 1 tsp. And I don't let it steep more than 3-4 mins. If I do, it gets too strong for my taste. Also, you're supposed to get the water to boiling, but I find that makes it taste a little too "green" for me, so I either stop the water right before boiling or I let it cool down just a bit before I pour it.
I am actually not a huge fan of the taste, so I doctor mine with honey.
Also, it does sometimes get my bowels moving if it's strong, so I wonder if that's what was happening to you?
