Ginkgo is the oldest known surviving species of tree in the world, which earns the distinction of being a living fossil. Remarkably, every species of tree, including ginkgo, was wiped out during the last glacial age, with the exception of a gingko tree in China. As a further testament of resilience, ginkgo was the only living specimen left standing after the atomic bomb was detonated in Hiroshima. Ginkgo leaf has a long history of use in producing teas and liquid extracts. The dried leaf is also commonly encapsulated as a dietary supplement.

$8.99Price
  • The herb ginkgo is the leaf of Ginkgo biloba, also known as the maidenhair tree. Because this tree is the oldest species of plant known with no surviving close relatives, gingko is referred to as a living fossil.

    Native to China, gingko has been used in food and medicine for centuries. It is said that the elephant's long memory is due to eating gingko leaves. You'll enjoy the mildly sweet leaf as tea.
