I’ve had an eggteastic day making Easter tea eggs. (Get it? Eggteastic. Like eggtastic only tea instead of ta. No? OK, moving on…)

So, about these Easter tea eggs: I have wanted to attempt making tea eggs for a couple of years now but haven’t managed until now. I decided that Easter was a good time to attempt them since I wanted some eggs for the holiday but I felt that dying boiled eggs on my own—and with no one to hide them for—might be a bit sad.

I did a bit of research and found several recipes that I felt I could follow, but since I don’t really follow recipes, I just used the others as guides. (This one served as my main guide, if you’re wondering.) Below is a wee photo guide for my version of tea eggs. I started simple this time, but will add spices next time.

Over the next couple of days I will use these for devilled eggs and potato salad. I’m egg-cited (get it?) to see how the added flavour enhances some of my favourite egg dishes.

Love how the color turned out!

Be sure to share photos of the deviled eggs.  I will be most interested in those.  What a unique potluck dish they would make!

I was a bit worried about the colour because I didn’t know if I cracked the shells enough or soaked them long enough. Next time I make them I’ll have a bit more patience and will let them soak overnight. These only soaked for 4-5 hours or so.

I’ll try to remember photos, but really they’ll look like regular devilled eggs only with a marbled outside. I think that if I do them for a potluck I’d mix some soy into the devil mix to pull the flavours together.
