Crush cardamom pods and cloves roughly in a mortar and pestle.
In a small saucepan, boil 1 cup of water with the cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon stick.
When it reaches a rolling boil, turn the heat off and let it steep for about 10-15 minutes (preferably with the lid on). If you can let it steep longer that's even better, up to 30 minutes.
After 10-15 minutes, turn on the heat again. Once it starts to boil, put in 3 teaspoons of black tea and sugar if you want it sweetened.
Let it boil for 3 minutes, then turn off the heat and add in 1 cup of soy milk. If the soy milk is cold, you might want to heat it a little further to ensure the tea is hot.
Strain and serve!
