Green Tea Rice

Ingredients (serves 4):

To Cook in the Rice Cooker:

To Prepare Separately:


Steep tea leaves in 1-1/2 cups of cold water for about one hour, then strain. You may enjoy the steeping water as cold tea.


Measure rice accurately using the measuring cup that came with your rice cooker. Rinse white rice until water clears, or rinse quickly once if using brown rice, and place in the inner cooking pan. 



Add water to the corresponding water level for “WHITE RICE” or “BROWN RICE”, whichever you are using. Cook the rice using the “HARDER,” “REGULAR” (if available), or "WHITE RICE" setting for white rice, and the “BROWN” setting for brown rice.



When rice completes cooking, mix in the strained tealeaves, salt, sugar and sesame.



Serve immediately.
