In this recipe, cracked hard boiled eggs steep in a spiced, smoky, tea-based liquid. The marbled veins that wrap around the egg give it a distinct marbled look. This recipe is courtesy of Ling Peng.
The preparation method is simple but does require a long steeping period. For ease, the dry spices can be substituted with store-bought 5-spice powder.
