  1. In a saucepan, place the boiling water over the tea bags and allow to infuse for 30 minutes.
  2. Discard tea bags, add sugar and then cook over a medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Check to see if syrup has reduced and thickened. If not, cook a little longer. Makes about 175ml.
  4. Peel oranges and slice into thin rounds, being sure to discard any seeds you come across. Arrange slices decoratively on a plate.
  5. Drizzle oranges generously with Earl Grey syrup (there will be some leftover), top with cream and almond flakes.
