  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 large tea bags
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Gently roll the hard-boiled eggs on a counter so that the shell cracks into a crackled pattern. Place the water, the tea bags and the soy sauce in a saucepan and bring to boil. Add the crackled hard-boiled eggs, reduce heat and simmer for about 1 hour.
  2. Remove from the heat and leave eggs in the seasoned water until ready to peel and eat.
