 When I was growing up my family always had this tea at Christmas time.  We never had it at any other time of Hot Spiced Teathe year.   It was always a Holiday treat.   Even today, Christmas is just not Christmas without some Hot Spiced Tea.

I think it may be similar to some Russian spiced tea recipes, but I've never seen another recipe like it.  If you have, please let me know.
