This...I would always underspice rather than overspice. I'd rather be slightly disappointed with the beers spice profile then have an undrinkable beer or something that you would have to age to get it to mellow. I had to do this with my Noble BoPils...not really an issue since it does better with age but something to consider.
Not that this helps, but I add spices at either 5 minutes or flameout and tend to get the profile I like that way, I do like more subtle flavors from them. The spice tea or your method will work.
