Nice! I only had jasmine green tea - which I find more "delicate" than black. I decided to use 2 bags to be sure and really liked the way this came out. The water/rice and cooking times are perfect - brown rice can sometimes be a stinker to get right. Thanks!:) Read More

This adds a very very subtle flavor to the rice. For me the change was so subtle that it isn't worth repeating. Read More

Loved this recipe! I used it as a side-dish to accompany baked salmon. I didn't have the cilantro so I used basil. It turned out great! The Jasmine aroma and flavor was very delicate but grasped my attention every bite I took. I added a pinch of cinnamon on a whim. I feel it helped bring out the Jasmine flavor a bit and kept the basil from overpowering everything else. Read More

This was a really nice recipe. It is hard to decide how to rate the recipe because it really only adds a very subtle jasmine flavor. But I thought it was fun to mix it up from the typical water and rice cooker dish. I used this in a Thai cashew chicken dish. My only problem with rice in cooking is the quantity of liquid v. rice to use. This was about right. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Tasted more like a bullion cube then jasmine. But it had a nice flavor overall. Next time if I am pairing this with an Asian entrée I would skip the cube. Read More

This was so-so for me. I didn't find that the jasmine tea nor the vegetable bouillon added much extra flavour to the rice. I tasted the cilantro the most out of any of it. It was simple and easy to make though which is a plus! Read More
