Green Tea Macarons with Adzuki Bean Buttercream

My Notes:
Macaron Shell:
Added 1tbsp matcha powder to ground almond and powdered sugar mix.

Further reduced sugar in buttercream as adzuki bean is already sweet.
For 1 egg white, I used only 30g sugar.

First tray has a lot of cracked shells... maybe oven is not hot enough? I preheated it for 15mins this time. Or could it be my cheap tray that is slightly warped?
Second tray was better with 6 cracked shells.
Third tray as perfect with 0 (yes, nil!) cracked shells.

Next round, I will swap the trays and pin down the culprit!
