She quickly proved to be more than up to the task by creating this original rice recipe flavored with Gorreana green tea for us to try, taste and share.
Have you ever cooked with green tea?
Well, this is your chance to add great flavor to ordinary white rice with this really easy-to-follow recipe that Sónia has provided for us.
Let’s head to the kitchen and cook great rice!
There is nothing easier than cooking white rice and this twist on that simple recipe requires very little ingredients.
The original green tea used for this recipe is Gorreana, grown in Azores. If you do not have this particular green tea, you may replace it with Chinese Hyson tea.
Now let’s begin!
The idea behind this green tea rice recipe is incredibly simple. Cook your white rice as you normally would, but replace your water with freshly brewed green tea. Let’s go through it step by step.
Serve, eat and enjoy!
Another way of making this rice recipe is by making the tea at the same time as you cook the rice.
Note: Only use this as a last-minute solution, if you really can’t spare the 5 minutes at the beginning of the recipe.
More about Gorreana Green Tea
Gorreana green tea is grown in the only industrial tea plantation in Europe. More precisely, this tea is grown in the Portuguese islands of Azores, in the Gorreana Tea Estate since 1883.
These islands in the middle of the Atlantic ocean provide the perfect climate to produce great teas. Though the most common type of tea grown is black, there is also Gorreana green tea.
The tea leaves are twisted in the same fashion as Hyson tea, which is a Chinese green tea also known as Lucky Dragon tea.
