Chinese New Year starts this Friday! Chinese holidays always make me wish that I was a kid again, at home with my family. When I feel like that, not even alcohol can make me feel better. Only food can.
So I decided to try making Chinese tea eggs. We used to eat Chinese tea eggs all the time growing up. Now, not so much. I don’t even see it very often in Chinese cafes or delis up here in the Bay Area. Maybe my tea egg radar is a little off, guiding me to the wrong places.
I went egg crazy. It took a couple tries to get the recipe right, but the apartment smelled amazing! And now I have enough Chinese tea eggs to carry me through the new year. =)
