Traditional Chinese Marbled Tea Eggs Recipe

I thought this would be an appropriate post since Easter is this weekend. I wanted to try something out of the ordinary as far as dying Easter eggs. I’ve seen these before and thought they were beautiful. The dark brown color that created these pretty marbled lines over the egg was very unique and would make for great photos! I found a great recipe on Steamy Kitchen.

Once I started the boiling process the kitchen smelled of anise and tea. However the actual taste of the egg was not a favorite of mine. I’ll just stick to photographing them.
