  • 1 cup White rice
  • 2 cups Grandma's Pumpkin Pie brewed tea (or your favorite flavor)
  • Sweetened condensed milk


  1. Brew Grandma's Pumpkin Pie tea as directed on the label.

  2. Next, cook the rice using the brewed tea instead of plain water. Add rice and tea to a saucepan, and heat until boiling. Reduce heat, cover, simmer about 10 minutes. Turn off heat and let it sit another 10 minutes.

  3. Add whatever amount of condensed milk you prefer for taste and consistency. Serve a scoop of rice in a bowl sprinkled with cinnamon. Feel free to adjust the amount of tea used to create your perfect rice.
