ingredients

directions

  • 1.Cover eggs in saucepan with cold water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Hard boil the eggs (usually 10-12 minutes cooking time).
  • 2.Drain eggs and allow them to cool enough that you can handle them.
  • 3.Using the back of a heavy spook, crack the eggs all over, but do not remove the shells (or you can roll them a la Pacino in Angel Heart). Try not to crack through the membrane under the shell.
  • 4.Place the cracked eggs back in the saucepan. Add in the tea, cinnamon, star anise, tamari, salt, sugar, and enough water to cover the eggs.
  • 5.Simmer for at least an hour and up to 2-1/2 hours or longer.
  • 6.Drain and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • You can refrigerate these little guys in their shells. Just peel them whenever you're ready to eat them. Great for a snack or a party platter (halved with yolk-side down to show off the pretty marbling).

    Yum! I simmered around two hours and then let it cool in the pot and the flavor did really meld into the eggs well. I especially loved the star anise that gave a great aroma while cooking and a wonderful taste.
