I noticed some teas have time requirements outside of those on the kettle. (Vanilla, 3 mins at 212 vs Black Tea setting at 5 mins.) How do I get around this?

When the tea is done brewing some of the tea leaves are in the kettle. I put 2 teaspoons of tea in the infuser, place the cover on it, insert into position in the kettle, lock the lid and brew. Any idea why tea leaves are getting into the pot?
