Bearded tongue grass is a herb used for deadening the pain of physical wounds. It can be made into a poultice for Kia Min in the quest of the same name, though doing so will earn the Player Way of the Closed Fist points. Old Ming says that for most people, bearded tongue grass would be fine, but since Min would start practicing again, she would be crippled. He warns the Player that fighting with an improperly treated wound could end Min's practices forever and that it's not worth saving a few silver. He tells the Player that is another healing herb red silk grass has much better chance to heal Min's wounds. He also tells the Player to be wary of merchant Fen Do, who would try to talk him/her into buying the cheap stuff.
