I made this for some green tea fans and it was well received. However, they were at bit dry after 20 min, so I tried them at 17 and 15 min, and 15 minutes was the winner. I foolishly bought matcha tea bags (which is powder plus tea leaves) instead of powder, but just used my coffee grinder to make my own powder. It gave a beautifully rustic green color to the cakes, although I'm sure it would have looked more "delicate" if I had started w/ the real powder. I made a simple glaze out of confectioner's sugar, non fat milk, and lemon juice (to taste) and dyed it a pastel green. Adorned with some simple gum paste cut-out jasmine flowers and they looked a lot harder to make then they were :) All in all a good recipe - thank you for posting it!
