Chinese Medicine (or Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM for short) is mostly made up of herbal stuff made-up of:
- dried plant(s)
- dried animal parts
- plant elements
- plant extracts
If going through customs bringing a bunch of different (TCM) herbs, separately (i.e.: a bag of ginseng, a bag of licorice, a bag of ginger, a bag of Goji berries), would there be any problems?
What is the proper way to deal with these kind of herbs (or plant/plant extracts) whilst going through customs?
Some things are plant-related, would that be cause for concern?
just for clarification the question is just related to herbs and plants not including thing like: dried curled snakes, dried seahorses, human penises or flying squirrel feces: as per Wikipedia's list of TCMs....
