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.
