Say goodbye to the complicated and energy-wasting tea egg recipe. I simplified the recipe for easier, healthier, and more delicious tea eggs. (because my life is already complicated. I wanna chill when I cook!)

This recipe is good for someone who cooks tea eggs for the first time or tries to cut down extra sugar, salt, or spices.

If you are looking for the classic tea egg taste, this recipe will be slightly mild for you. I added a note on the recipe card below, how many extra ingredients you will need to add to make the original tea eggs.

There’s always time to eat or workout. The choice is yours.

It’s Autumn in Melbourne, Australia.

With the ease of covid19 restriction, finally hiking is allowed since May 13th, 2020.

Although I was really looking forward to going hiking, with chill and rainy weather, I decided to stay inside and cook tea eggs instead. Oh well lol.

What is a tea egg?

Tea egg is a typical Chinese savory food commonly sold as a snack.

I first saw tea eggs as street food when I visited China for Guangzhou Tea Expo


  1. You boil eggs,
  2. Crack the boiled eggshells,
  3. Then, boil the cracked eggs again in tea with spices.

This was the first tea egg I cooked last year in 2019.

It is also known as the marble egg because cracks in the eggshell create darkened lines like marble patterns.

Do you feel hungry or crave for munches often? Tea eggs are very filling!

how to make tea egg

After I cooked tea eggs, I ate four eggs as my breakfast! They were so yum, I was kept eating.

I didn’t know how much eggs could fill me up. I had breakfast at around 8 am, then didn’t feel hungry at all until 3 pm.

Eggs rank high on a scale called the Satiety Index. This scale evaluates how well foods help you feel full and reduce calorie intake later on. Additionally, eating a diet high in protein may reduce obsessive thoughts about food by up to 60%.

Whether you want to lose weight or not, eating tea eggs can help you stay more focused and energized throughout the day because the feeling of hunger doesn’t distract you.

For me, it was a genuine surprise. It was nice to enjoy food without feeling stuffed. I liked how the feeling of fullness stayed for hours.

You can enjoy these tea eggs as is. It’s also delicious with rice, noodle, or as a side dish.
