Deviled Tea Eggs
Serves: 12
 
Ingredients
  • 6 large hard-cooked eggs
  • 2½ cups water
  • ⅓ cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons Lapsang Souchong black tea leaves*
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon minced pickled ginger
  • ½ tablespoon pickled ginger juice
  • 1½ teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon dry mustard
  • Garnish: pickled ginger and fresh chives
Instructions
  1. Using the back of a spoon, gently tap eggs all over to crack shells, but don’t peel.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring 2½ cups water, soy sauce, and brown sugar to a boil together over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add tea leaves and eggs; reduce heat to low. (If water does not completely cover eggs, add enough to do so.) Cover and simmer for 10 minutes; remove from heat. Uncover and let cool to room temperature.
  3. Transfer eggs and poaching liquid to a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. (The longer the eggs stand, the deeper the flavor and the more vibrant the marbling.)
  4. Peel eggs. Using a sharp knife, cut eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks from whites, and set whites aside. Place yolks in a medium bowl. Using a fork, mash until very fine. Add mayonnaise, shallot, pickled ginger and juice, Sriracha, vinegar, and dry mustard, whisking until smooth.
  5. Transfer yolk mixture to a piping bag fitted with an open-star tip (Ateco #822). Pipe yolk mixture into egg white halves.
  6. Garnish with pickled ginger and chives, if desired.
Notes
Lapsang Souchong is a heavily smoke-scented Chinese black tea.
