Tealish’s Lapsang Souchong Infused rice!

Fall calls to mind all kinds of delicious flavours: spicy chai, caramel apples, warm pumpkin spice and (our personal favorite) smoky tea. When the temperature starts to drop, us Tealish folks can’t get enough of Lapsang Souchong, a traditional Chinese tea that’s dried over baskets of burning pine. Whether in our deliciously citrus blend Russian Caravan, on it’s own, or as a latte with vanilla soy and brown sugar, this tea smells like freshly snuffed camp fires and warms the body to its core.

Perhaps our love of Lapsang made this amazing tea recipe from Joseph Shuldiner’s “Pure Vegan” cookbook even more exciting. Using Tealish tea, a touch of lavender to soften any bitterness, and some of our favorite veggies, we’ve adapted his recipe into an amazing tea-laced rice bowl, just in time for fall!

The Goods:

1.5 cups white jasmine rice
2 tablespoons Lapsang Souchong black tea
1 teaspoon Tibetan lavender tea
2 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon salt
a few cups of your favorite veggies and protein! (we used brocolli, onion, carrot, celery and tempeh)
a splash of organic tamari

The Method

1. In a teapot or heat proof bowl, combine tea and boiling water. Steep for 3 minutes, then strain into a medium saucepan and let tea cool.
2. Rinse rice and add to the tea. Stir in the salt and let sit for 1/2 hour.
3. Put the saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. lower heat and simmer until liquid is absorbed and rice is light and fluffy (15-20 minutes).
4. Meanwhile, chop veggies and cook over medium heat in a frying pan with a splash of organic tamari (to taste).
5. Scoop veggies onto rice and serve immediately!

*You can also try making this rice with your personal favorite black tea or oolong!
