About Jade Dragon


Find Balance with TCM

At Jade Dragon, we honor the ancient herbal wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), in convenient formats adapted for busy modern lives. TCM is a time-honored system of maintaining balance of mind, body and spirit through a holistic system of health and well-being. 

Jade Dragon® Classical Formulas makes the ancient herbal wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine more accessible in the 21st century. We use time-trusted herbal formulas, delivered in a more convenient and concentrated format. 

Why Teapills? 

Teapills are highly concentrated herbs in a convenient, easy-to-swallow format. They became a common method of taking Chinese herbs back in the 1960s, using traditional herbs in a format ideal for today’s busy modern world. 

Teapills start out as an herbal tea (thus the name). Classic herbal formulas are simmered in water until highly concentrated, potent and easier to consume. They replicate the experience of slow-simmering herbs all day.

About Jade Dragon 

We’re part of a third-generation Chinese-American family business based in California. Founded by Wilson Lau, Jade Dragon draws from his family’s deep roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. His grandmother, Dr. Bing Yin Lee, was a respected and in-demand TCM practitioner. In 1979, she opened an herbal shop in Oakland’s Chinatown. That grew into Nuherbs, the family’s herbal business that supplies high-quality Chinese herbal remedies and supplements worldwide. 

Jade Dragon uses those same ingredients to deliver traditional, high-quality teapills blending ancient Eastern wisdom and modern Western technology. 

Why Choose Jade Dragon

Mother knows best, right? In this case, grandmother knew best. Our founder grew up taking herbal formulations expertly (and lovingly) prepared by his grandmother, Dr. Bing Yin Lee, a highly respected TCM doctor and acupuncturist. Later, as a busy working parent, he didn’t have time to simmer herbs all day. (Most of us can relate!) Using the same techniques and herbs as Dr. Lee did, our teapills deliver potency and quality in a format that’s easy to use at home or on the go. Shake a few into your hand, take them with a sip of water, and you’re all set! 

  • Quality you can trust: We’ve been sourcing high-quality Chinese herbal remedies for decades, each one tested for your peace of mind. 
  • Deep roots in TCM: We use time-honored TCM herbs in high-grade classical formulas that work for the 21st century.
  • Convenience & accessibility: Our teapills are smaller and easier to swallow than capsules or tablets — and more convenient than herbal teas or infusions.
