Roasted Rice Tea Recipe (Sungyung)

A popular Korean grain "tea", Sungyung is just well-roasted rice steeped in hot water. It has a nutty, smoky flavor.

This recipe makes a large batch of roasted rice so that you can have a cup of sungyung whenever you feel like it. If you just want to make a few cups of tea, you can also just fry some rice in a dry (no oil) pan.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

  • 3 cups of cooked rice, warm


  1. Preheat the broiler in your oven.
  2. Spread the rice onto a cookie sheet, in a layer that is about 1/8 - 1/4 inches thick.
  3. Put coookie sheets in oven but not too close to the broiler, for at least 5-10 minutes per side.
  4. The rice should be brown and very crisp on each side.
  5. You can store your roasted rice in the breadbox for a week or in the refrigerator for a longer time.
  6. To make sungyung (sung nyung) tea, take about 2 tsp of the roasted rice and steep for a few minutes in a cup of water.
