I recall preparing this tea and when I'd prepared the tea and water mixture, I'd added the cinnamon sticks to the liquid. I used a small tea ball and placed the cloves in the tea ball.I also used: 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1/4 cup pineapple juice in this beverage and omitted the whole allspice! This did make for a delicious and pleasantly spiced beverage!Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein
