To be honest, I don't think it's the higher effective gear you're feeling. The difference between 700Cx23 and 700Cx28 is all of 0.4 gear inches! I seriously doubt I'd feel the difference at all, even if I tried.
On the other hand, going from a 16T to a 17T drops your gearing by about 4 gear inches...
