Bird Pick Breakfast Tea has a nice malty, citrus finish. The supreme fresh fragrance adds wonderful notes of fruity and earthy Oolong (more Taiwanese style) and Yunnan Pu-Erh, which gives a rich, smoky compliment to the soy sauce in this recipe.

Step 1
Fill a large pot with Egg (12). Cover with cold water and add Salt (1 teaspoon). Bring to a boil and immediately turn off the heat.
Step 2
Cover the pot and let eggs bathe for about 10 minutes.
Step 3
In another pot, bring Water (6 cup), Soy Sauce (6 tablespoon), Chinese Five Spice Powder (1 teaspoon), Granulated Sugar (1 teaspoon), Salt (1/2 teaspoon) and Bird Pick Breakfast Tea (2 tablespoon) to a boil.
Step 4
Once the eggs are done with their hot water bath, drain and cool.
Step 5
Tap each eggs with the back of a spoon to crack the shell. Do not peel the shell as the crack will allow the tea mixture to seep in and create the notable crackling pattern.
Step 6
Place all cracked eggs in the tea and soy sauce mixture and simmer for a minimum of 2 hours on the stove. May also place in a crockpot and allow to simmer on low.
Step 7
Will keep in a refrigerator for up to a week.
