Ginkgo nuts (白果) - frequently misspelled as "Gingko", are particularly esteemed in Asia & some consider them to have aphrodisiac qualities. Ginkgo nuts are used in congee & are often served at special occasions such as weddings & the Chinese New Year.

Wood-ear Mushroom/Black Fungus (黑木耳) – Commonly known to alleviate “dryness” & promote circulation of the body. Black fungus particularly aids in nourishing the lungs, stomach & liver.
