These eggs had light brown shells before i cooked them and now look at them. Wow. these are so easy to make!! Do not worry about the teas taste is only taste very lighly or tea and you moslty have a eff taste.

2 teaspoons alt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons black tea or 2 tea bags

Put the eggs into a suacepan with enoght cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for 2 minutes.

Remove the eggs. with a knife tap each egg to slighly crack the shells into two or three places ( you can roll them on a towel) . Place them back in a sucepan.

Add the other ingredients and stir. cover and simmer for 3 hours, adding water as necessary. Drain, serve hot or cold.
