I drink Matcha and Sencha from Pacific Leaf.
For a quick cup, I drink Bigelow Organic Green Tea.

Then the steeping time should be no more than 1:30 for the first steeping. If after following this procedure, the tea still turns out bitter, then try reducing temp and time.
I've had better luck with reducing the amount of tea, as far as making a less bitter brew goes.
