Green tea and Jasmine Delice: Great smell and good taste

 I don't have enough time to play with my food lately, due to my work and family, ^^", anyway I try not to keep anyone who want to try something new waiting, hehe, it's my job, right?

Green tea and Jasmine Delice
 I got this book a long time ago: ........................., but after tried her scone and didn't happy with the result, the book went back into the shelf. 
But I feel bad not to give this book another chance, so I start to read it again. The dessert that I choose to make is Green tea and Jasmine Delice, but again, the ingredient measurement is questionable and the making method is confusing and I think there are other way to make it easier (You know me, I rarely talk about other people fault but I don't want anyone to have a bad baking experience). 
So I base on her book but change many things to suit my home made way, hehe. The pistachio cake is very good I think it can be used in other dessert in the future. If you love the green tea taste and enjoy the great smell of jasmine tea, I know that you will enjoy this cake cake too. Serve it with a cup of tea and you will be in tea heaven, ^^.

You need to use good green tea powder (see the photo here https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=150802094970388&set=a.150802084970389.40883.148994658484465&type=3&src=https%3A%2F%2Ffbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net%2Fhphotos-ak-frc1%2F133703_150802094970388_1018537_o.jpg&smallsrc=https%3A%2F%2Ffbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net%2Fhphotos-ak-ash3%2F163255_150802094970388_1018537_n.jpg&size=590%2C885), there are many grades in the market.
For the jasmine tea, it's the same problem, try to find the one with good aroma (mine is from China) ^^.

No, there is no vanilla, and the baking time is right ^^.
