      This is absolutely fantastic! I made this to go with Juanita's Seafood Gumbo, as both recipes emailed to me by a friend. This goes with anything Oriental, and was superb with the Gumbo. I mean to say, it was precisely perfect with the Gumbo! I've never had jasmine rice in any form before, but this dish was very enjoyable. I can't wait to make this (and the Gumbo) at our Family Reunion next month! Thanks Fiendish_Dramaturgy! Keep submitting these kitchen treasures.

      Enjoyed! A couple changes. I steep the tea bag right in the pot of water and rice for 5 minutes. I added all the ingredients from the start using 1/4 cup of butter not the 1/2 cup margarine. Skipped the 1/4 cup of water. No need to strain. Just stirred and served. Walla yummy goodness with ease. Made for Comfort cafe

      This rice was so delicious. The fragrance itself is amazing and the subtle flavor is to die for. Would go great with practically anything. I am sure I will be making this regularly from now on. Thanks for a GREAT new recipe!
