    So do you like this greentea cheesecake better than NY style? I have to say though, after trying all kinds of Japanese cheesecake (including one that was just a glob of cheese in a basket) I still like the NY style much much better.

    Wow, green tea flavored cheesecake sounds really good. If NY style consistency is better than Japanese, maybe there’s a way to use the green tea in a more traditional recipe. I’ll have to investigate. Thanks for the idea!

    i love the consistency of japanese cheesecake, although it makes it seem feasible that eating a whole one isn’t really a bad idea, which of course it is. your cheesecake is gorgeous! and i love anything matcha flavoured.

    Ohhh, Japanese cheesecake. Green tea flavored, nonetheless. However, this is the only recipe I’ve seen that uses green tea bags. I’ve only seen ones that use matcha (so bloody expensive!). Even if you say it’s not as good as Fay Da’s, I doubt they serve it with lychee sherbert. ;) I’m not too big a fan of Fay Da though. They seem to cater a bit more to the less-sweet chinese taste buds, which I like. However, rather than being simply less sweet, some of their stuff just tastes watered down. Still, it is pretty good stuff. I can’t say I’ve tried the Japanese cheesecake though. I don’t see it in the Mott St. location. Killer mini-cheesecakes though.

    Hm, I haven’t had cheesecake in a while, and I know my family loves it too. Oh, corn flour is the same as corn starch. But corn meal is neither. :)

    wow…that sounds really interesting. I was just scrounging for a japanese cheesecake recipe when I came across yours. I think I will try it, and green tea sounds delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi Jessica, I just made this cake today for my sister’s birthday, and it turned out wonderfully!…Well, the taste did anyhow – I managed to foolishly (and accidentally) set my oven to broil rather than bake the cake…HUGE mistake. But I still managed to save the cake, and both my sister and my mother enjoyed the cake! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Although, I found water on the foil after unwrapping it from the springform pan – is that due to the condensation of the steam when the pan was in the oven? Or did water from the water bath leak into the foil? Thanks again!

    …Well I came across this recipe decades ago (OK, so I exaggerate) and finally got round to making it today – I’m British, so cornflour to me is cornstarch and the texture was great. I’ve actually never had a Japanese cheesecake before though so I’m assuming that it was supposed to be the way it turned out… lol.

    Thanks for the great recipe, anyway, and would you mind if I posted a link to this post/recipe on my own blog? I just really want to blog about it ^__^
