Combine boiling water and Bigelow® Green Tea Bags together. Let stand for 10 minutes. In a 1-quart (1L) casserole bowl, combine green tea and butter; stir until butter melts. Stir in rice and salt. Cover casserole bowl. Bake in a preheated 350ºF (180ºC) oven for 30-35 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork before serving. This recipe can be doubled for a crowd. For an interesting twist substitute quick cooking barley for the rice.
