Tea Cookies (cookies w/ tea leaves in them) recipe?

war3rd | Mar 5, 2008 01:42 PM

When I lived in Taiwan i often drank tea (slightly oxidized oolong or green tea) in the teahouses and the proprietors would take the spent leaves and bake them into shortbread like cookies (like a tiny calzone sort of) and bring them out for us to munch on. They were the best things in the world. Now, back in the states, no one has ever heard of this and I miss them. Does anyone have a recipe for these?
