Black Tea Cookies - Korean Bakery - Recipe Help Please

Oh, I wish I lived closer to this bakery - I tried these "Black Tea Cookies" on a whim, and I would buy DOZENS of these delicious little cookies!

I spent hours yesterday searching online for a recipe, but I am not finding anything that looks right. I can probably adapt recipes for "Earl Grey Cookies" combined with some kind of almond cookie recipe, but since I'm not a baker, this might be a long trial-and-error process. I'm hoping that some of you might have an idea of how to do it.

These small, round cookies are about an inch in diameter - looks like they started out as little dough balls before baking. You can see the black tea leaves - it's not ground into powder - and there are thin slices of almond in the dough as well. They're kind of like the consistency of Pecan Sandies. Not terribly sweet. Not super-almond-flavored, either. They almost look like they're covered in fine sugar, but they're definitely not rolled in sugar. You can really taste the tea - it's... enchanting.

Here are a couple of photos, in case that helps.
