Chinese Tea Eggs

A few months ago, our shiatsu therapist Suzy made some Chinese tea eggs for us to try.  We immediately fell in love with this savory dish and wanted to share the recipe with you.

Tea eggs are a traditional snack in many parts of China.  The ingredients are very simple: tea leaves, soy sauce or tamari, star anise, salt, and a touch of sugar.  In cities like Shanghai or Beijing, you can find delicious tea eggs being served up by street vendors.  It’s also common for parents to boil some up as a nourishing after school snack.  Whenever Wei makes tea eggs, the unique and wonderful aroma of the tea leaves and spices simmering on the stove top transports her back to her childhood in Shanghai.

Enjoy these eggs anytime of day!  Plus, if you’re looking for a unique appetizer, this dish might be your answer.
