I wasn't sure where to put this, it can be breakfast or snack or what ever.

Marbled Tea Eggs
8 eggs
1 green onion, including green part, crushed
1 teaspoon slivered ginger
¼ cup regular soy sauce
¼ cup dark soy sauce
3-4 Tea bags or 3 Tablespoons black tea leaves
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar or I use splenda
½ teaspoon 5 spice powder
3 whole star anise
1 cinnamon stick

Place eggs in saucepan; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, redue heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Cool the eggs under cold running water and drain. Gently tap each egg all over with a spoon until hair line cracks form over the entire shell.

While eggs are cooking, bring the remaining ingredients to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce the heat to a gentle boil, cover and cook for 15 minutes.

Place the cooked eggs into the soy mixture, adding extra water if necessary to cover the eggs. Simmer, covered over low heat for 1 hour. Remove the pan form the heat. Let the eggs cool in the liquid then refrigerate still in the liquid overnight or for up to 2 days. Peel the eggs just before serving and place in a serving bowl, drizzle a small amount of liquid on top.
