Fantastic! Spicy without burning, garlicky without being overwhelming. The rice tastes like it's been cooked in green tea broth, not water. I would use sesame oil next time, to play up the sesame flavor.

This was delicious. I didn't have any plain green tea, so I used some mandarin orange flavored green tea; it turned out fabulous. I also added a little bit of sesame oil at the end, maybe half a teaspoon, to up the sesame flavor. It was wonderful and went perfectly with the Sichuan chicken I made as a main course . I look forward to making this again many times, and experimenting with different flavors of tea.
