  • Summary

    Tea-marbled eggs are a time-honored part of Chinese cuisine. The outer shell of a hard-boiled egg is cracked (but not removed), and the egg is then soaked in tea, which gives it a lovely marbled appearance and subtle smoky flavor. We found traditionally cooked tea-marbled eggs — usually simmered for an hour — were too tough for our taste; this method yields more tender whites.

    Ingredients

    • 12 large eggs
    • 3/4 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 3 cups water
    • 4 Lapsang souchong tea bags*
    • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar, or to taste
    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    • Garnish: watercress sprigs
