The next action is to warm a little olive oil in a saucepan and fry for a minute (roughly) the rice grains.

You simply have to add the green tea to the pot and let the moderate fire do the rest. Do not forget to cover the pan and keep in mind to view from time to time as the cooking goes on. When it is practically all set, turn off the range and let it rest for 5 minutes.
