Tea eggs are a popular Chinese snack food which are typically made by hard boiling eggs and then steeping them in a mixture of soy, pu-ehr tea, and spices like cinnamon, anise, five spice etc...Tea eggs are often dyed red for celebrations like weddings and baby showers too! They are not exclusive to China and can found in Malaysian, Indonesian and Taiwanese cuisine.
The taste of these eggs are sweet and savory since the marinade uses brown cane sugar. If you like hard boiled eggs, you'll enjoy these for sure! They're a perfect on-the-go snack and are lovely as a topping on congee as well.
