Good morning Kimmy,
A rather interesting herbal dish which I've never try before. I think I should give it a go because of its health benefits as I suffered from extreme fibroids and having very heavy periods running into months at a time. How's the taste like? Is the herbal taste very strong?
Would appreciate your feedback. Thanks

Hi Florence, sorry to know about your problem but do think positive as this could be a menopausal symptom if you are around this age. If it is this reason, maybe Pak Chan soup can help as a remedy. Do check with the medical shops or maybe a visit to a gynae will solve this problem. The taste is like normal herbal soup, not that bitter. It is just the dark look which you may think is a strong herbal soup.
