Although I do not celebrate Easter, I still love to decorate eggs. This year I thought I would give tea infused eggs a try. These Chai Tea Infused Marble Easter Eggs are beautiful and easy to make!

Thinking about it, I came up with the idea for a Chai infused marbleized egg that would look pretty and have an interesting taste as well. Of course you can us any dark tea that you like!

A dark tea will naturally color the eggs so you don’t have to use any artificial colors.

These are a home run!

The Chai tea permeates the house with an aromatic smell and makes it more tantalizing than smelling the vinegar used in typical egg coloring procedures.

While the eggs are beautiful to look at, they also have an amazing taste as deviled eggs or simple egg salad with homemade mayonnaise.

In light of all the news about the detrimental effects of artificial food colorings (here and here), it is so much better to use natural products than exposing your children to the toxins in artificial colorings through their skin – yes, the chemicals go right through the skin into the body.

Use only products that you can also eat.

Speaking of eating, you may be wondering why I have only 4 eggs in the photo. I wanted to show what the inside of the shells looks like – cool huh? – but the real reason is my brilliant husband ate the eggs BEFORE I took the photo!

He’s in the dog house now – or maybe I should say the hen house!

  • Author: Dr. Jill
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes



  • Hardboil the eggs as you usually would or roast the eggs and let cool
  • When the eggs are cool crack the eggshells all around by rolling the eggs on a towel or using a spoon to gently tap it all around
  • Do this gently to prevent the shells from detaching from the eggs or breaking – the deeper the crack the more interesting the look so try to get the crack deep enough to crack the fascia, but not too deep to detach the shell
  • Place the eggs in another pot of simmering water with the tea bags, for one hour
  • After a hour turn off the heat and let soak for several hours until cool
  • Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate
  • Remove shells just before serving – the eggs will have a gorgeous marbled look


  • Two  3 – 4 quart pots
  • Slotted spoon
  • Plastic wrap
