Artemisia argyi is commonly known as Silvery Wormwood or Chinese Mugwort in the West. It is a herbaceous perennial plant with a long creeping rhizome. It is native to China, Korea, Mongolia, Japan, and the Russian Far East

The product is easily recognisable as a dried leaf as per the product photo shown whereas Ai Rong has been processed into a fine "floss" as shown in that product's photo

in Japan it is known as Gaiyou.

It grows to about one metre tall, with short branches and a creeping rhizome. The stalked leaves are ovate, deeply divided and covered in small, oil-producing glands, pubescent above and densely white tomentose below. The lower leaves are about six centimetres long, bipinnate with wide lanceolate lobes and short teeth along the margins. The upper leaves are smaller and three-partite, and the bracteal leaves are simple, linear and lanceolate. The inflorescence is a narrow leafy panicle. The individual flowers are pale yellow, tubular, and clustered in spherical turned-down heads. The central flowers are bisexual while the marginal flowers are female. The petals are narrow and folded cylindrically and the bracts have a cobwebby pubescence. The whole plant is strongly aromatic.

It is a common flavouring and colourant in the Chinese dish qīng tuán

The leaves are gathered in spring and summer when the plant is in flower and then dried in the shade.

In traditional Chinese medicine, they are considered to have bitter, pungent and warm properties

This is a traditional herb in Chinese Traditional Medicine and, yes, it comes from China. All plant material imported into the UK, no matter where it has originated, has to undergo DEFRA Microbial and stringent phytosanitary tests before it can gain a certificate for legal sale. All our material has been tested. It is wrong to assume that China is the only place where pesticides and heavy metal contamination sometimes occurs. Some of the worst contaminated products originate from the USA and the EU - hence the testing required by law
