You learn something new every day, or so the old saying would have us believe. What I learned today (well, a few days ago) is that there's a type of soup made with green tea.

It's called Ochazuke and it's popular in - you guessed it - Japan. Apparently the two standard ingredients in Ochazuke are green tea and rice, which are livened up with assorted and sundry others, depending on the preferences of the chef.

For a little more info on Ochazuke, check out this brief piece over at While you're there, be sure to take a look around. The page is a production of the Japan-based World Green Tea Association and they've got plenty of information there on green tea. Maybe you'll learn something new today.

What an interesting find! Just saw your blog off of foodporn. I love learning new things everyday!
I mean, I've heard of green tea ice cream but soup sounds great for this time of year! It's finally fall! YES!!
