1 dozen eggs
2 tea bags (I used Lipton's black tea bags)
1 star anise
2 tsp salt
Make hard boiled eggs. There are several ways to make this. My mom recommends filling a pot with 12 eggs and adding enough water to comfortably cover the eggs. Bring to a boil and cook for 3-5 minutes. Then let the eggs cool.
Once cool, lightly tap the egg on a hard surface all the way around the egg. You want to lightly crack the shell but not remove it. The cracks will allow the tea to infuse even more into the egg.
Put the eggs into a clean pot and fill with water, comfortably covering the eggs. Add salt, tea bags, and star anise.
