How it works:
- Opening: an accomplice acting as a customer at a herbs stall will tell you that the herbs are top notch and that she is here regularly to buy.
- Set-up: after you have chosen the herbs you want, they will throw in additional stuff to grind together with the herbs. Now that everything is grinded, an inflated bill is demanded.
Places to beware:
- Guangzhou: Qingping Medicine Market
What to do:
- Avoid buying unless you know your stuff or have a local expert for help as you can be overcharged by thousands of dollars.
