What is Zhu Ling?:

The Chinese Herb Zhu Ling comes from a type of wood-decaying mushroom (Polyporus umbellatus) whose fruiting body comprises clusters of small, soft-bodied caps which together can grow quite large (up to 50cm.). These individual caps are harvested, sliced, and air dried for use as medicine.
