Dye Easter eggs with tea:
Our Easter egg hunts might look a little different this year, but that’s no reason to skip the fun tradition. Have you tried to dye Easter eggs with tea? We love the natural look and you most likely have the simple ingredients needed. It’s a great activity to get the kids involved, and it’s fun to see several of the eggs turn out much different than the color of the tea. Try making a guessing game out of it, everyone can write down what color their eggs will turn out… we think you’ll be surprised! (hint hint: use hibiscus tea!)
- Assorted teas: we used Lemon Ginger Tusli, Hibiscus Spice, Pomegranate Green, Rooibos, Himalayan Green, Decaf Black
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- White Vinegar
- Several Small Bowls (or mason jars work great)
- Tongs (optional)
- Wire Rack (optional)
1) Brew a different tea for each bowl/mason jar. Use two tea bags per cup so it’s potent. Steep for about 30 min.
2) Once the tea has cooled down, add a Tablespoon of vinegar and a pinch of salt.
3) Add hard boiled eggs to the tea jars. Allow to sit for several hours (you can leave them overnight in the fridge if you want more saturated color).
4) Remove eggs from tea to reveal their color!
We love how these natural dyed eggs look on the table and in Easter baskets. Plus, you don’t have to worry about dyed counter tops that are impossible to clean! The tea cleans up super easy and won’t dye hands either. Have you tried to dye Easter eggs with tea? Tag us @allegrocoffee on Instagram and let us know how it turned out! We hope this easy project is a fun way to keep your normal traditions going without having to leave the house.
