Excellent! Today for the first time, I made this tea. I ended up with 2 1/2 cups and not 1 cup as has been mentioned by you. Moreover, the reason I took away 1 star is that, the taste was "phika", a little more sugar is necessary, I would say, about 2 1/2 tsp. sugar instead of 1 tsp. is perfect! Overall, very well written recipe with simple, easy to follow instructions.
I didn't find this to be anything special. I used local honey rather than sugar. Rice Dream for the milk, as we are dairy free, however I did not boil it in from a previous experience of separation occurring. I also did not simmer in the honey as it is unhealthy to heat honey to high temperatures. I used a Lipton Yellow Label tea bags. I made this for the medicinal properties of clove. I strained the cloves out before adding to my tea cup. I won't make this again.
Very nice! I used a drop of honey (my prefered sweetener for teas) in lieu of the sugar. The cloves add a nice subtle spice to the tea. Next time I may use more cloves (say 4?) to get a more distinct flavor. Delicious as-is, though!
