Tommy The Toad Thanks so much for this one!

To me…this smells like semi-burnt rice, pu-erh, and tangerine.

It infuses to a medium-dark brown.

This is better than I thought it would be. The Tangerine flavors are a nice compliment but not overdone. There is some sort of burnt rice flavor in there, too. The Pu-erh isn’t overpowering either. There are even bit of cocoa powder type flavors I am picking up right at the beginning of the sip.

The more I drink this the more I am liking it. Not bad at all.

I infused it for about half the time TTT did – at about 1 minute.

Did you have this in a gaiwan with a little piece of the peel? I’ve only had some with no peel and it it wasn’t burnt tasting but light and delicate with a citrus scent.

I used a stainless steel strainer AKA brewing basket. I had a bit of the peel, yes. Oddly – I kind of like the semi-burnt rice flavor…that might be weird…lol…

Bonnie

Not at all. In Puerto Rico the rice that sticks to the bottom of the pot is called “pegao” and is crispy and tasty and a favorite. It’s usually toasty brown and sometimes almost…but never…burned. One of the things I learned to make when I lived there.

JC

Meeeehhhh. I’m from Puerto Rico. Pegao and burnt are miles apart lol. But I’m glad you know about that Bonnie! I miss that. I think it was because of the ‘caldero’ used to make the rice is hard to make it so it doesn’t stick, after hundred of years I guess people went “Rice cracker!”. LOL

Claire

I like the semi-burnt rice flavor too! My mom’s parents were from Spain, and my grandma’s paella always had sticky-crunchy rice at the bottom of the pot. I loved that stuff.

JC

Love Paella. We have too much of our food thanks to the Spanish influence so it might be part of it. Now I’m hungry again :P

Sound nice! I would add some mushrooms to have something else going on. The food network one with zucchini… I’m not sure maybe it will work but I wouldn’t make it myself. Good Luck and Enjoy!

TeaEqualsBliss: I have an awesome vegan paella recipe around here too, I’ll dig it out & send it to you.

I’ve been wanting to try these tangerines filled with puer! I saw them on ebay, & they look interesting!

TeaEqualsBliss

Terri – that would be awesome if you could send me the recipe!!! Thanks!

Terri HarpLady

T=B – I dug around & found several, & I posted one (that I know was a favorite) over in the Discussions area on the recipe page. I’m thinking there may be another one that’s even better, & if I find it, I’ll post it too. Meanwhile, I also posted an awesome Tabbouleh recipe that I love. It’s pretty different from your usual version. Enjoy!
