Dried shepherd's purse is a type of medicinal herb that is often used in traditional Chinese medicine. It is named after its triangular-shaped seed pods, which resemble a shepherd's purse. The herb is native to Europe and Asia, and is often found growing in fields, meadows, and along roadsides. The plant has delicate, white flowers and small, heart-shaped leaves.

The herb has a pungent, slightly bitter flavor. It is often used to flavor soups, stews, and other dishes, as well as in herbal teas. Dried shepherd's purse is also used in traditional medicine for a variety of purposes, although there is limited scientific evidence to support these uses.
