Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
For September 2016
naturally speaking Chinese Recipes and Home Remedies
See more books by Terry Tan HERE
Tea Eggs ~ pages 168-169
 This is a slightly different version from previous recipes I used
Hard boiled eggs (I used chicken and pigeon)
Black tea leaves - I used Poh Lei
Water into which you add the above tea leaves. eggs
star anise, dark soy sauce and salt.
Bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour (I did 1.15hrs)
 marbling is not obvious in the pigeon eggs
but came out quite nice in the larger eggs
