I did not know that green rice existed. For those curious like me:

Jade Rice is a short to medium-grain white rice that is dyed green with bamboo juice. The juice gives the rice a mild green tea flavour and aroma. The chlorophyl in the juice gives the green colouring.

It's good stuff, I buy the Lotus Foods brand, it has a nice subtle bamboo flavor and a soft texture. It's basically nicely flavored white rice.

I suspect our man Andrew Rea is using the same brand because he shops at Whole Foods and that brand also makes madagascar red rice which is a wonderful brown rice.

In Thailand there's a lot of colored rice with different flavours. Green is normally flavored with Pandan leaves whole blue colour comes from Butterfly Pea flowers.
