Matcha Cheesecake has become very popular all around the world. If you google it, you will see millions of photos of Matcha Cheesecake and many recipes as well. This cheesecake is based on my Super-Easy Cheesecake recipe. I simply added Matcha Powder to it. And I made an attempt to create Latte Art style decoration which was too hard for my shaky hands!

6. Cover the bottom of the cake tin with foil, place the tin on the pan, pour boiling water to the pan about 1cm deep.
