Crafted with 100% authentic Uji Matcha and a recipe inspired by Nakamura Tokichi Honten founded in 1854.

To showcase the exquisite flavour of Uji Matcha without overpowering its delicate nuances and creating an overbitter taste, our Matcha Basque Cheesecake follows a different recipe with different baking time, temperatures, and cheese-to-cream ratio. This exclusive approach was inspired by our visit to Nakamura Tokichi Honten in Uji, Japan during 2018, where we discovered the optimal temperatures for baking matcha and the perfect cream-to-matcha ratio.

Setting it apart from many others, who simply add matcha powder to a standard recipe for matcha flavour, our Matcha Basque Cheesecake stands in a league of its own. It's neither a weirdly savoury cake (due to our adjustments) nor merely an ordinary and dry matcha-flavoured cake. Instead, it boasts an irresistible fragrance and creaminess that fully capture the unique taste of Uji Matcha, leaving a lingering sensation with each delectable bite.

We wholeheartedly invite any matcha enthusiast (or even non-matcha lovers indeed) to give it a try, for our Matcha Basque Cheesecake is bound to deliver an authentic and delightful experience.

Every cake comes with a small pot of homemade four-berry compote and crunchy Biscoff crumbs, optional to serve with. This cake is also gluten-free.
