Green tea chiffon cake with Green tea white chocolate whipped ganache

I have a lot of green tea in the fridge now ^^ (as I told you that you need to keep the green tea powder in the fridge or freezer to keep color and aroma of it).
I bought some of them from Japan, and there are some can that I got from my friends. Green tea will lose it quality if you keep it too long, so I think I have to use it more often.

This time I use this one, (thank you Kapook). Anyway, this recipe uses a lot of green tea powder so I have to mix it with other brand of green tea too ^^. I choose chiffon cake to use as a base, but I want more butter taste in the cake so I use melted butter instead. The texture won't be as light as the original but not as dense as butter cake and stay soft. Sprinkle the cake with syrup helps the cake become moist longer too. 
For the ganache, it needs to be cold enough or it will be hard to whip, but don't let it too cold, it will become solid. 
With a lot of green tea, the bitterness of it (in a good way) shows, follow by the sweet and rich taste from white chocolate and butter. I love to eat it with a cup of hot tea, it's the best companion.
