Brew Constant Comment® tea bags in ¾-cup (180mL) hot water. Remove tea bags and discard, squeezing to extract as much liquid as possible; add honey, cumin and ground cloves and mix well. Place lamb cubes in large glass casserole and pour tea mixture over lamb. Mix well and set aside. Pierce sweet potatoes and microwave on high until tender 10-12 minutes, turning once (time will vary according to microwave). Meanwhile, thread 5 pieces of lamb onto each skewer. Sprinkle with a little salt and brush with marinade. Preheat broiler; broil lamb, brushing with marinade, 3-4 minutes per side or until cooked to medium. Remove pulp from sweet potatoes and mash with butter. Keep warm on low in microwave. To serve, divide sweet potatoes into four servings, top with skewers of lamb.
