What is Ding Xiang?:

The Chinese Herb Ding Xiang is dried flower buds (commonly known as cloves) from a tree in the myrtle family (Eugenia carophyllata Thumb.) that grows in the Guangdong and Hainan provinces of China (but is also cultivated widely throughout Asia). When the flower buds emerge in the summer they are small and green; as they ripen into the fall, they change color to reddish-brown and become quite aromatic and spicy-fragrant—and it is at this time that cloves are harvested and dried for use as medicine (and as spice for food).
