Assam tea provides a flavorful, fat-free broth on which to build the other flavors in the soup. Serving tip: Serve this spicy dish with bowls of fragrant rice.
- Make a cheesecloth bundle with tea leaves, peppercorns, cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, and ginger. Bring 12 cups water to boil in a large stockpot. Remove from heat and add cheesecloth bundle; let steep for 4 minutes. Remove cheesecloth bundle and discard. Add soy sauce, fish sauce, green onions, and crushed red pepper flakes; adjust seasoning to taste.
- Steam corn for 5 minutes; remove from heat. Cut each ear into 1 1/2-inch rounds. Cut each zucchini lengthwise into four quarters; cut each quarter into 1/2-inch pieces using a diagonal cut.
- Return tea liquid to a simmer and add corn; simmer for 5 minutes. Add shrimp and simmer for 5 minutes, then add beans and simmer for 3 minutes. Add zucchini and simmer for 2 minutes, until crisp-tender. Serve.
