Du Zhong Herbal Soup 杜仲汤
Left : Du Zhong or Toe Chung in Cantonese. Middle : Bei Qi or Pak Kei in Cantonese. Right : Dan Shen or Tong Sum in Cantonese
The clear brew.
For a more nutritious soup you can add pork bones when brewing
So I looked up the old recipe file and found this concoction. The herbs can be bought at Chinese medical shops.
20 g Du Zhong ( Mandarin )
10 g Pak kei in Cantonese or Bei Qi in Mandarin
10 g Dan Shen ( Mandarin )
6 cups water
salt to taste, optional
1. I prefer not to add salt when I take herbal brew.
2. If you need to add salt, remember to add the salt last i.e. after the brewing has completed
3. For a more nutritious soup, you can add a couple of pieces of pork bones to the water when brewing
2. Put all the ingredients into a pot and add in 6 cups of water
3. Once the soup boils, reduce to low heat and allow to cook for 3 hours.
4. Drink the soup while it is warm
