Tea Eggs

One of the delicacies that we were treated to at the tea house high up in the mountains of Taiwan was tea eggs - eggs that are hard boiled over several hours in a large kettle of tea.  At some point in the process the eggs are cracked so that the flavor of the tea is actually able to seep into the eggs.  After returning to Taipei, we discovered that most of the local quick stops had a kettle of tea eggs on a slow boil for their customers.  Tea eggs have a really unique flavor, and they are easy to make.  Give them a try!
