A popular Chinese breakfast item is Tea Leaf Eggs.  They help strengthen the brain
and benefit concentration.  Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and culture, people
are encouraged to eat high protein foods in the morning, and eat less at dinner time.  
The Tea Leaf Egg is a good source of protein for breakfast or for a snack anytime.


1 green tea bag, 3 eggs, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp fennel seeds


1.   Add enough water to cover the eggs, add all of the ingredients.  Bring to a medium
boil for 5 minutes.
2.  Crack the egg shells as much as you can using a large spoon (do not remove the
shell from the egg)
3.  Place the eggs back in the same water and bring to a medium boil for another 3
minutes, turn off heat and then leave the eggs in the water overnight.
