Yield: 6 servings

  1. 2 cups dry white wine (such as Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio)
  2. 2 cups water
  3. 1 cup brewed spiced white tea* (made with 2½ teaspoons tea leaves and 1 cup water)
  4. 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  5. 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  6. 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  7. 6 eggs
  8. 1 recipe Tarragon Scones (recipe follows)
  9. 6 thin slices pancetta, cooked until lightly crisp
  10. 1 recipe Truffled Hollandaise (recipe follows)
  11. Garnish: fresh tarragon, fresh cracked black pepper
  1. In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine wine, water, tea, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.
  2. Break 1 egg into a teacup or small bowl, and gently slide it into the simmering liquid. Poach at a slight simmer until whites are firm but yolks are still runny, 3 to 5 minutes, or until egg reaches desired degree of doneness.
  3. Remove egg, using a slotted spoon, and place on a plate line with paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining eggs, one at a time.
  4. Cut Tarragon Scones in half horizontally, and place a slice of pancetta on each bottom half. Top with a poached egg, and drizzle with Truffled Hollandaise. Garnish with fresh tarragon, if desired.
  1. *We originally tested this recipe with SerendipiTea Organic White Tea with Mixed Spice, which is no longer available. SerendipiTea reccommends its tea Cakewalk as a substitute.
