Made tea eggs last week using a herbal spices in a package, we're using MasFood but you can use any other brands. Following the instructions on the packet, we have prepared 15 eggs and 150 ml light soy sauce. We need to wash and boil the eggs until done, take them off the stove and cool them and gently make cracks on the egg surface, this is to ensure that the eggs can absorb the herbs well. Next, prepare a fresh pot and measure out 150ml soy sauce, pour it all in the pot, add the spice bags, eggs and enough water to cover everything and simmer under medium heat for 3 hours. The nice fragrance of the herbal eggs can be smelled throughout the house whilst its cooking.
The verdict? The eggs do absorb the herbal spices well, but I find them a little too salty. Maybe we could try reducing the soy sauce next time, or add more water. Have you tried any other herbal eggs spice packs? Or do you have any homemade recipes for herbal eggs? I'm very fond of tea eggs, do share with me :)
