Matcha Green Tea Snowskin Mooncake

Snowskin (雪皮 xuepi /shwair-pee/, 冰皮 bingpi) mooncakes are NON-BAKED mooncakes, believed to have originated from Hong Kong but is now enjoyed by the Chinese throughout the world. It gets its name as the crust is made of frozen glutinous rice flour and looks somewhat like snow white. It tastes best when chilled. As tea and mooncakes are among some of the most traditional foods for the Chinese, blending the two items can create a new and popular variety for the otherwise, traditional mooncakes. Furthermore, with the taste of the refreshing green tea, the usually oily and rich taste of mooncake is well balanced.
