Add the raisins and sultanas to the tea and leave for 30 minutes before straining. Heat the sugar and 75 ml (5 T) water over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and simmer slowly until the mixture turns a caramel colour. Remove from the heat. Mix the strained tea and cream and slowly add to the caramel.
