    Sounds interesting. What kind of tea did you use, and I would try adding more tea to make them stronger. I heard chicken embryos are favored over seas too.

    I've seen them before ... but could not bring myself to try them. Maybe because the were next to the sushi. :eek: (I can't stand the smell of sushi.)

    Thanksgiving was interesting when my mom ask her neighbor from Hong Kong over each year. :D

    I used some oolong I had laying around.

    I think next time I will make a higher concentration. See if that helps.

    I have heard that embryos are preferred.

    I saw Andrew Zimmern eat one once and he complained about the feathers.

    Not yet....I have so many teas. I have loose tea from China that is awesome. Can't tell you what it is, because the package is all chinese, but I love it. I was thinking of trying it with that. I usually boil eggs on Mondays, so maybe try it next week. Tell you what I think.

    Wow, they look great, check out the shell pattern!! I haven't eaten them yet, letting them cool. As they simmered I added soy sauce to taste. I also used the leftover tea mix and marinated tonights chicken it it.
