Wow, I love green tea flavors and this was my very first attempt at making a dessert out of matcha. I am so used to getting this flavor from green tea ice cream, it was almost bizarre to have it in a fluffy airy mousse cake like this. The color is delightful and is not as rich as a lot of cheesecake. I really enjoyed this recipe!
The crust is good. But the cheesecake part had a "gelatinous" texture/flavor to it. I think there is too much gelatin. And the flavor was very one dimensional. Maybe it needs more honey, and a splash of lemon juice or zest to brighten up the flavor. Edible, but will be looking for another recipe, or tweaking this one.
Outstanding! This recipe is fabulous. The presentation is also gorgeous. Go make this NOW!
Good recipe. Needs more machta powder to increase flavor. A bit on the bland side in that respect but otherwise is a good recipe.
Very good. Very sweet, so the grassy-ness of the green tea doesn't stand out so much.
Avoid adding too much matcha as it can be a bit bitter. I think a white chocolate whipped cream would be a great accompaniment to this. I also used shortbread crust instead of graham. Tasty and light...not heavy like traditional cheesecakes.
i followed the recipe exactly, and the mousse cake i made turned out great!!! i made it for my roommate and she just loved it. i made it in a heart shape by using a heart shape springform pan. i also sifted some greentea powder on the top of the cake, and chopped white chocolate flakes at the top, and it looks gorgeous..
I just finished making this and it was pretty good. I couldn't find any matcha, which I thought was ridiculous since I live in Korea town! I decided to buy good quality green tea and emptied out 5 tea bags into my coffee grinder to produce matcha, it worked pretty well. I also incorporated some leftover matcha into my crust along with some green tea Pocky sticks. I don't like melting my butter when I make gram cracker crusts because I feel that mixing in cold butter until the crumbs stick together give it a better taste and texture. I also decorated the cheesecake with green tea whipping cream, an apple swan and pocky sticks. Overall it's a pretty good recipe, will defiantly be making it again (:
