Tea Rice

Michelle Koletar/Mertz


This is just a little thing I did tonight that I wanted to share, as it added great flavor. I was making rice for stir fry and added 2 tea bags, white mandarin orange flavor, to the water as I was cooking it. It came out so nice. I'm going to experiment with more flavors, depending on what I'm cooking. But you may want to give it a try next time you're making a stir fry or Teriyaki or even Indian style cuisine.
Also, I thought everyone would get a kick out of my dog (far right) on this picture; I didn't see him when I was taking it. Ha, ha! Obviously, the meal smelled good to him.

How to Make Tea Rice


  1. Just add tea bags to the water as it's boiling for your rice or noodles! That's it. :) I also added an orange zest.
