Tea-fragrant & Browny Marble Eggs

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp black tea leaves (I used 1 tea bag to replace tea leaves)
  • 4 pcs star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp cracked peppercorns (optional)

* You can use 3-5 tsp of chinese 5 spice powder to replace star anise & cinnamon stick.

  1. Tap each egg shells to slightly crack in two or three places with a knife. Place in a pot of water.
  2. Add other ingredients and stir well. Cover and simmer for at least 2 hours, adding water as necessary.  

**For stronger flavour & deeper colour, cook longer.

**Sauce can be frozen and reused.
