This is a very easy, simple tea flavoured rice to prepare. The original recipe is from Amy Beh where she advised that Long Jing tea leaves are used for cooking this rice because the flavor of this tea is mild and tasty.
I served this tea flavoured rice Black Beans Spare Ribs in Pumpkin Bowl [Click Here for recipe].
