Heat the sugar, spices, tea and lemon juice until dissolved.

Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

For the koeksisters

Sieve flour and rub butter in with fingertips until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Make a well in the centre and add enough milk to form a soft dough.

Knead gently until smooth. Roll out thinly, cut strips and plait to form small koeksisters.

Deep-fry until golden brown and immediately dip into the cold syrup.

Store koeksisters in the freezer to keep them crisp.
