Fantastic Rice!

I bought this brand of rice for the first time from their website and i have to say it is the best rice I have ever bought. You could smell it cooking and it kept a lovely flavour. I am not really any good at cooking rice normally but this worked perfectly. I will be buying more of this rice! Thank you Essence of Thailand.

Very good value for money for sushi rice.
When it arrived I noticed the grains were slightly longer than the sushi rice I usually buy from the supermarket, but once it was cooked, seasoned and rested, the taste and texture were still perfect.
