Mmm, nice and toasty. Hearty flavor for first thing in the morning, like a bowl of oatmeal. Today I shook up my leaves with a pinch of matcha powder I bought from the bulk section of Whole Foods last night (I’m so lucky that Austin is home to the flagship store!) to give them a nice dusting. The matcha powder enhanced the sweetness of the rice, but got rinsed off by the second steep. A comforting tea for sure.
