I think they mean level 'teaspoon' as in not heaping on the kitchen measurement device, not 'teaspoon' grab a spoon and fill it up level.
Properly measured 1 tsp per swing top does not seem like too much. 48 tsp = 1 cup, so that's only slighly over-carbed in a 12 oz bottle. We're talking 22 oz bottle here.
Are you sure fermentation was done when you bottled?
