  1. Put the dried fruit in a large bowl and stir in the tea and sugar. Cover and set aside to soak overnight.
  2. The next day, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease a 2-lb (1-kg) loaf pan.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the dried-fruit mixture and beat well.
  4. Pour into the prepared loaf pan, pushing the mixture into the corners of the pan.
  5. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  6. Turn out of the pan and leave to cool on a wire rack.
