Green Tea Cheesecake

The weather getting cooler here and can see most of the trees on the street changing their leaves from green to red then to brown or yellow. It was so beautiful in the early autumn, I love the moment when I sent my son to school, feeling the breeze from the gentle wind, and tree shredding the beautiful red leaves. Now, it is just cold and most of the trees are left with half bald tree stem! My body still need time to adapt as I'm starting to cough again...

This bake was done early last week, the dense texture of the cheesecake was good, I love the mild green tea tastes that come in the end of the bite. Unfortunately, I forgot to place the baking paper around the cake pan make dislodging the cheesecake nearly impossible. Anyway, when I was done with the dislodge, the edge of the cake is with an ugly curled :( 

I'm submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #30: It's Tea Time! (April 2013) hosted by Food Playground.
