      I really enjoyed this. I like the way the tea flavor sort of goes into your mouth before the actual food. The sweetness of the raisins was most welcome.

      This was niiiiice!!!! Nobody is going to jump up & say, "wow, tis tastes like tea!" but it has a nice subtle flavor and the rest of the ingredients make for a nice pilaf-y dish. We all enjoyed it tremendously. Even mom who said, "what is orzo?" Made for the 7/09 Veg*n Swap.
