Tea-flavored Eggs
8 eggs
1/4 cup dark soy sauce
3 Tablespoons thin soy sauce
3 scallions, minced
4 slices fresh ginger
3 Tablespoons black tea leaves
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon five-spice powder
2 whole star anise
1. Place eggs in a two-quart pot, cover with cold water, and simmer them for ten minutes. Then cool them under cold running water and gently tap each one with a spoon until hairline cracks form all over the entire shell. Do not peel them.
2. Return the eggs to the pot along with the remaining ingredients and enough cold water to cover them. Simmer on low heat for forty-five minutes, remove from the heat and cool in the cooking liquid for an hour, then refrigerate in the liquid overnight.
3. Remove the shells and leave whole or cut the eggs into quarters and serve.
