Delicious! I DOUBLED the recipe and used all ground ingredients: 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves, rounded 1/8 tsp black pepper, two dashes nutmeg (just upended the container and shook twice), 4 English Breakfast tea bags; I only had cuties on hand so I used 4 cutie peels. I added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract as well.
Added everything to the milk and water once it was warmed over medium heat. Then I brought the mixture to a simmer, turned off the heat (I worried about the evaporation) and let everything steep, covered, for about 10 minutes. The result was a rich dark brown color. I poured it into a teapot with a looseleaf-tea strainer and it kept all the spice particles out. Sweetened with honey.
Next time, I'm going to let it simmer down for a more concentrated brew, then freeze in an ice cube tray to make blended frapps and things with frozen yogurt. If I want a straight up cup, I'll probably ditch the honey and add sweetened condensed milk for taste and consistency.
