Chinese Tea Eggs

These are really impressive looking boiled eggs.


  • 6 eggs

  • 2 star anise seed pods

  • 2 tbsp (or tea bags) of black tea

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 4 tsp salt

  • 4 tsp sugar

  • 8 pepper corns

  • 1 stick (or 1 tsp ground) cinnamon


  1. Boil a pan of water.

  2. Place the eggs in the pan of water for 4 minutes.

  3. Remove the eggs from the water and cool under a cold tap.

  4. Use the back of a knife or spoon to crack the partly boiled eggs all over.

  5. Place the eggs back into the pan of the water with all the other ingredients. Stir well.

  6. Simmer for 2 hours.
