This herb is available by the pound in either raw or powdered form. Sadly, beginning in 2016 the cost to import this herb has increased radically, which has forced us to increase our price.
The above quoted price reflects the cost of the highest quality of this herb that is available. While we prefer to deal only in high quality herbs, we also realize this is a heavy hit. Therefore, we also make a lesser quality of E Jiao available, which is slightly smaller in size but equal in strength and ability. If you'd prefer the lesser grade (it's a medium grade actually) give us a call and we'll quote you the current price.
Thanks for your cooperation.
