This is accompanying my rice pudding breakfast – the first time I’ve made rice pudding from uncooked rice. It worked! But wow, it took a lot of liquid! (Raisin, vanilla and a little lemon zest. Yum!)

It’s good, as the second steep. I do enjoy this tea even though it’s not an every day tea for me.

Oh, and look. I have to leave in 7 minutes. Time for the quickest shower ever. (So I got distracted with tea. It happens!)

Sounds like the rice pudding turned out really well! I tried making some once and it was too soupy, wouldn’t absorb ENOUGH. Maybe it depends on the rice.

It was very good! I used arborio rice I picked up for risotto. But then i forgot about it and used partially de-husked (? It’s not quite brown but not quite white) sushi rice for risotto, so maybe I just have luck with rice?

Who knows! It may depend on the recipe too. Maybe the one I made was meant to be soupier. The addition of lemon zest sounds nice.

It’s incredible how much liquid the rice will soak up if you let it sit overnight, or just keep cooking it. Congee is something like 6-8 cups water and 1/2 cup rice. I usually end up adding more water because I cook it with the lid off!

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
