If you've ever seen a tea egg, then you know it's one of the most beautiful ways to prepare a hard-boiled egg. Tea eggs are traditional snacks in Asia and involve cooking eggs in soy sauce, star anise and cinnamon. The marinade infuses its flavor and dyes an interesting spiderweb-like pattern into the egg.
While they don't celebrate Halloween in Asia, we sure do here in the States. And what better food to fill your Halloween-inspired recipe repertoire than with a simple marbled (and spiderwebbed) tea egg.
While we know that marbled eggs normally pop up around Easter, with the right color (and that strong spiderweb pattern) we're making a push for it as a standard Halloween recipe.
