We recently went to NYC to visit friends and family, and our good friends took us to a bunch of killer Malaysian restaurants in Chinatown. I was inspired by our visit to make a twist on the classic Malay Coconut rice and infused the rice with The Creator tea blend, which highlights lemongrass, ginger, coriander, coconut, fireweed, and mint. I was amazed at how much of the tea imbued into the rice - and you notice it at the mid-point of each bite.
2 cups jasmine rice, washed 3 times and drained
1 cup coconut milk
3 tbsp The Creator tea blend, bagged
1 tsp kosher salt
3 makrut lime leaves
1 inch piece ginger
