My wife wants to bring back to the US loose dried plant herbs that she can buy at the wholesale herbal market. Does anyone have any experience with doing this over the last several years. US Customs website isn't very clear about this. We can buy same/similar "packaged" herbs in the food section a nearby Chinese supermarket but at a much higher inflated price. They can be used to make Chinese herbal concoctions.
I just wanted to refresh this thread
just in case it was missed by the few people who might have answers.
You could try calling the information line for US Customs: www.cbp.gov/contact
Their toll-free number should be a free call on Skype.
