How To: Dye Easter Eggs with Birds and Bees Teas!! How To: Dye Easter Eggs with Birds and Bees Teas!!

03 Mar , 2016

Easter is nearly here and we’re super excited because again this year we are dying eggs with herbs.  That’s right, you can skip the artificial colors and make your own stunning eggs out of our teas!  You can choose to separate the herbs out or simply brew up different batches of tea and dye the eggs with them, the process is the same either way and quite similar to using standard dye kits. You can also use a variety of foods such as cabbage and red onion.

How To: Dye Easter Eggs with Birds and Bees Teas

  1. Place 2-4 T of herbs to 4 cups water in a pot along with 1 T cream of tarter or white vinegar (this will help the color absorb into the eggs)
  2. Slowly bring to a boil
  3. Reduce to a simmer
  4. Simmer 15-30 minutes until a nice, dark color has developed
  5. Add 3-6 eggs and simmer for an additional 15 minutes
  6. Remove from heat and let sit for 15-20 minutes (can also place in fridge overnight)
  7. After desired color is achieved remove egg and allow to dry
  8. For a nice sheen on the egg you can rub it with vegetable oil

Have fun!  Try different colors, decorations and more.  We’d love to see your photos of naturally dyed eggs.  Share them on our Facebook page, we can’t wait to see!
