8 Treasure Tonic

commonly known as
Pak Chan

consists of 8 herbs
for the benefit of ladies
certain herbs like Dang Shen also beneficial to man
now whole family can share the same soup

I was told 
to wash eggs with shell on
boil together with the Bak Chang herbs

I put off the idea as I find the shell may be contaminated
I prefer to hard boil the eggs
remove the shell
then only dump into the boiling 
Bak Chang

Some even suggest 
boil Bak Chang first round to extract the nutrients
for the lady of the house
add water, chicken & eggs to boil 2nd round
for the whole family

I tried it.
2nd round tastes good as it is not so thick
especially with added chicken
it tastes even better

1 pkt pak chan
1/2 chicken, chopped into chunks
2 eggs, hard-boiled

1) rinse Pak Chan herbs & put into a pot
2) add sufficient water to cover the herbs
3) bring to a boil, lower heat & simmer for an hour
4) drain tonic for the lady of the house
5) add chicken, eggs & water to bring to a boil
6) turn down heat & simmer for 1-2 hours
7) serve hot for the family

Ba zhen - Mandarin
Pueh Tin - Hokkien

I prefer the Shi Quan Da Bu Tang. Ten tonic, just additional 2 more herbs.

Great soup to fortify the blood esp for ladies after the time of the month.

Edwin Tan: My late mum used to cook this,
one of my favourite herbal soup.
Every time I drink this,
it will remind me of her boiling this soup and the whole house will be filled with this delicious herbal scent.

Katie Foong: Exactly! Our fond memory of grandma too.

Edwin Tan: Oh and the pantang of not drinking cold water
or tea or something like that after drinking this soup,
if not white hair!
😂 I dunno if she said that to scare us or what!

Katie Foong: Haha! No cold drink, if not wasted her effort!
