      Very pretty and a unique flavor. These came out a lovely pastel green and had the distinct slightly bitter tang of green tea flavor which was very nice. They were very tender, although I felt they could use more sugar, as they were almost too floury tasting. I chose to dip one end of the cookies in melted white chocolate to make it more festive for the holidays. That bit of extra sweetness in the chocolate really helped balane the flavor of the cookies.

      These were very good. Slightly bitter and green tea flavoured. Do not overbake them or else the flavour completely disappears.

      I loved it! But I'd say that you can put in more green tea powder if you'd like! Even my parents, who sometimes are afraid to try my new things, liked it!
