Chinese Tea Candy

When I was in Elementary School (a looooong time ago), one of my teachers handed out tea candy for the Chinese New Year. It tasted like a cup of strong, well-sweetened black tea, the kind they serve at Chinese restaurants.

Since then, I have been searching for something similar. The search hasn't been constant, obviously, but every now and then I get such a craving for it!

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Do any of you know where I could find it, either online, or in NYC's Chinatown?
