chinese tea eggs 7 1 How Tea Egg is cook?

Tea egg is a boiled egg that is boiled again in savory liquid with spices and tea. It is a popular savory snack among the Chinese communities. Not to forget, it is also one of our Tea Chapter’s specialty that has satisfied many customers’ taste buds.

The process of cooking tea eggs sounds simple but to be more aromatic flavorful, you have to put in some effort in doing so.

First, pick some big fresh eggs. Wash them clean and let them boil in water until it is 80% cooked. While waiting for the eggs to be cooked, gather all the ingredients, and put them inside a cloth bag.

The ingredients include star anise, cinnamon, Szechuan peppercorns, Oolong tea, and rock sugar. The reason for using premium Oolong tea is because it needs to be simmered in the mixture for a long time to achieve fragrant and smooth broth.   

Once the eggs are cooked, scoop them out and gently crack the shell of each egg so that a marbling effect is created while brining. Be careful not to break the eggs apart. This is to allow the flavor of the sauce base to seep into the egg.

Then place the eggs and the ingredients that you have prepared into the pot and seasoned the broth with dark and light soy sauce. Let the eggs boil for 6 hours. The longer the tea eggs remain in the broth, the more flavourful and coloured they will be.

茶叶蛋是煮制过程中加入茶叶的一种加味水煮蛋,是华人的风味小吃,也是茶渊的特色小吃,甚至在茶渊俘获了很多客人的味蕾。

煮茶叶蛋说起来很简单,但是要煮得清香入味,可就得花点功夫了。首先,得挑选新鲜个大的鸡蛋,一个个清洗于净,然后放入水中煮至八成熟。在等待鸡蛋煮至八成熟时,先把所需要的材料放入布袋里。

材料包括:八角,桂皮,花椒,乌龙茶叶和冰糖。选用乌龙茶叶的原因是茶叶不能是出汤清淡的品种,必须选用耐泡,味浓,中等以上的茶叶,才能赋予平凡的鸡蛋以清雅香滑的口味。

之后,把鸡蛋捞出来,轻轻敲碎鸡蛋外壳。然后,把鸡蛋和准备好的布袋放入锅内,再加入黑酱油和酱清后,熬煮六小时后,茶叶蛋就完成了。
