Do you like the taste of the ‘tea eggs’ 五香茶葉蛋 they sell in 7-11 convenience stores in Taiwan? Then you must try and make these at home – perfect, delicious and 100% natural ingredients. Joanne was so happy with these eggs and the taste – she also said that our kitchen had that smell of 7-11 around the steamed and boiled food area!
