You can experiment with different flavors of tea, to discover which brand and type of tea you prefer for this tea recipe. Great teas to try are Moroccan Mint, Earl Grey, Orange Pekoe or Assam black tea. The whole cloves and cinnamon sticks shouldn't fall into teacups when you pour the tea, unless the spout on your teapot is wide. (If your teapot has a wide spout, you might need to use a strainer when pouring the tea.)

The tea will increase in its depth of flavor the longer it stands, because the cinnamon and cloves will continue to add flavor as the steeped tea continues to rest.
