Hot Detox ~ Tea-Time Eggs

hot detox recipe Apr 06, 2023

The protein-bound sulfur found in egg yolks is needed for cytochrome P450 detoxification, the Phase 1 pathway in the liver. The dark tea creates a beautiful pattern on the eggs, reminiscent of spiderwebs. The scent of spices from the tea permeates the eggs, leaving a trace of sweet and spicy flavor. These spices also happen to be anti-inflammatory.

6 large organic eggs
3 teabags chai tea
1 tsp pink rock or gray sea salt

1. Lower the eggs carefully into a pot of boiling water, and boil for 8 minutes.

2. Drain the eggs. When cool enough to touch, hold each egg in your palm and crack the shell very gently all over with the back of a spoon but leave the shell intact (do not peel).

3. Add the teabags, salt and eggs to a saucepan, adding enough water to cover the eggs. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

4. Remove from the heat, and let the eggs to cool in the liquid. Transfer the pan to the fridge to steep overnight.

5. In the morning, carefully peel the eggs, and enjoy.

Makes 6 eggs.

Eggs are high in selenium, which is used to create one of our body’s most powerful antioxidants: superoxide dismutase (SOD). A study published in the Journal of Neurotoxicology reports that selenium efectively reduces toxic mercury buildup.
