I was thinking about making Tea Eggs too and yesterday I went to the medical hall (Fu Hua), and they packed the ingredients for me.

This is what is they packed for me.



Shall try to boil them later. Wink

The the white ones on the left are dang gui.

And I can only speculate that the twigs are tea leaves. I can't figured out what is that black thing that has a very strong smell. MIL mentioned a name, but I can't catch it. Embarassed

When I got them to package it's only $2/-, and it's a big packet. Too bad, the ingredients are not written on the bag.

Eu Yan San sell those pre-packed ones.....You can look out for it. They used their pre-packed herbs to cook their tea eggs too. I bought from them b4, it's very fragrant.
