Matcha Cheesecake anyone?

The silky green tea Cheesecake has the irresistible semi-sweetness and the delightful look

This homemade green tea cheesecake is super easy and simple. In fact the hardest part is waiting for it to set in the fridge. So if you need a last-minute dessert recipe for a party, this is the perfect choice. Everyone will love its soft and silky texture complementing with the earthy and bittersweet flavor of matcha powder.

The crust of the cake is made from fine bits of chocolate biscuits mixed with butter creating a crumbly yet moist base that goes well with the satiny and silken cheesecake on top.

If you want to create swirl pattern for the top, save about ⅓ of the cream cheese-potato starch mixture before adding the matcha. After pouring the matcha cheesecake mix, dollop the saved mixture on top and use a skewer to swirl.

Swirl Matcha Green Tea Cheesecake is the top choice dessert for its soft and creamy cheesecake complementary with the bitter sweet and earthy matcha flavor

If you prefer a uniform and beautiful green cheesecake, just mix matcha to the whole cream cheese mixture like in the recipe.

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
