Description of Dish:

According to Chinese – English dictionaries here and to have a more precise translation, the name literally means eggs that have been boiled in black tea and seasoned with five spices (or the five basic flavours used in Chinese cooking, being: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and savoury.

As you can see in Image 2 above, the liquid that the eggs are in, is literally black. When eaten, it tastes a bit salty and if the Writer is correct, they have actually added soya sauce to this concoction as well. Usually eaten for breakfast with other dishes.
