Bring water to the boil (enough to cover the eggs) in a small pot. Add the quail eggs and boil over a small flame for 2 minutes. Add the smoked tea to the saucepan with the eggs. Simmer for 2 minutes longer then let it stand for another 10 minutes. Strain off the tea-infused water and wipe the eggs dry.
