“A unique combination of Green tea leaves, lemongrass, honey and mint shaped into cookies produces an originally fresh, yet simple treat with an Asian influence. I suggest the Good Earth Tea brand because it contains lemongrass; I've tried this recipe with plain green tea leaves and it is NOT the same!” - by B. Maitreya

- In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and honey until smooth. Empty the contents of the tea bags into the mixture and discard the bags. Mix until well blended. Stir in the egg yolk and peppermint extract. Blend in the flour and baking powder. Divide into 3 sections, wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). On a floured surface, roll out one portion of the dough at a time to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 2 inch round shapes using a cookie cutter. Place cookies onto ungreased baking sheets spaced 1 inch apart.
- Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are dry, and the edges begin to brown lightly. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature when completely cooled.

"The first time I made these they were tasty, but a bit powdery. The second time, I added a 1/3 cup of sugar and they came out beautiful...much nicer, crispy texture...." See more"
"A very unique and light treat! I made them for a baby shower and received many compliments. They fall apart in your mouth. I couldn't find green tea with lemon grass so I just used green tea with lemo..." See moren and they turned out just fine."
