Serves:5 to 8
Total time: > 120mins
Course: Snack
Cook Method: Simmer
Cuisine: Chinese









Ingredients:

12 eggs
4 cups water
6 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp Chinese pu-erh tea leaf

1 star anise
3 cloves
½ tsp Chinese five-spice powder
1 tsp sugar




Steps:
  1. In a medium pot, add 4 cups of water. Gently drop in the eggs, making sure that the water covers all of the eggs. Bring the water to boil on high heat, for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the hard-boiled eggs out of the pot and rinse them with cold water. Gently crack the shells by using the back of a teaspoon, and then return the eggs to the pot.
