Green Tea Rare Cheesecake: 抹茶レアチーズケーキ

 As I told you that my freezer is packed with load of green tea, but I can't stop buying it, haha.


And I did it again, when my friend went to Kyoto, she asked me what I wanted from Japan, I said without hesitation: Green tea! Because buying good green tea is not easy outside Japan, and if you use it regularly, it will be gone very soon.
I use a lot of it, not only for baking, I drink it too, so it's better to be prepared, right? I love green tea and coffee, and I put green tea into my coffee, it's delicious, or sometime I make green tea milk, or make green tea jelly and cut it into a glass of milk well, when using delicious green tea, it's easier to create yummy menu ^^.
As it can't be kept forever, when you buy good (or delicious one), keep it in cold place (freezer is good), and USE IT!, or the taste and the smell of the green tea won't be as good as you want it to be.
Today, I use it again ^^, but this time I put it in cheesecake. Even there are both cream cheese and cream, you won't be overwhelm by the richness as the yogurt gives the right amount of the tanginess, when the bitterness of the green tea makes this cake so additive. I use only 3 g (2 tsp) of the green tea in the sauce and cheesecake batter, but if you want you can add more (you can use up to 5 g), adjust the amount to suit your taste and your tea.
