Tea Eggs! Looks gross, tastes great. I ate way too many of them when I was backpacking through Taiwan. They looked even worse there, floating in big vats of what looked like mud. But I always try to do as the locals do, and didn't regret it. Update: Great add for Keto-diet!!
MARBLED CHINESE TEA EGGS RECIPE - Chinese tea eggs are a tasty and beautiful snack, spectacular thanks to their spiderwebded texture. The first time I ate this marbled Chinese specialty I was in Beijing. Even only a bite is unforgettable. A strong and particular flavor, not for all, but a must-to-try! - asian recipes traditional idea snack recipe
These popular Chinese snacks, called cha ye dan, are made by hard-boiling eggs, gently cracking their shells, & simmering them in a fragrant brew of black tea & spices—cinnamon, star anise, whole cloves. The flavored tea imparts a sweet flavor that carries right through to the yolk, & a sepia tint that lends an antique, marbled look to the white. Home cooks, chefs, and street vendors across China have their own takes on the centuries-old recipe: Some add soy sauce or sweet & spicy.
