Yi Xin Ge Bak Kut Teh: Hakka-Style Herbal Soup for Home

Clear eyes, full hearts: This bak kut teh can't lose when it comes to a soul-warming home meal. Yi Xin Ge promises packets of beautifully fragrant broth base, rich with herbs and spices, to make marvellous bowls of meat bone tea.

True to its name, Yi Xin Ge's philosophy is "do everything with your heart," encapsulated in the contents of each set - dong quai, Solomon's seal, licorice roots, cinnamon, peppercorn, crystal sugar and the rest of a secret dried herb-and-spice sachet blend that has sold more than 10,000 boxes in the last dozen years.

Preparing bak kut teh with Yi Xin Ge is pretty straightforward - pour the contents of each packet into three litres of boiling water. Add in pork ribs (or chicken) and any other ingredients you'd like to boil, and let it all simmer at low heat for an hour. Also add garlic (one or two, whole) for this to taste exactly like BKT broth. Each packet is suitable for a serving of three to five persons.

In 60 minutes, you're ready to serve! Yi Xin Ge's Hakka-style soup mix is light and clear, pleasurably intense in herbal aromas.

Each packet costs RM23.90. Throughout the current Movement Control Order, Yi Xin Ge is offering a 'Buy 4 Get Free Delivery' promotion for West Malaysia, exclusively for delivery only in West Malaysia. Orders will be sent out the next day after payment is made; customers will receive their order within three days (though it might take up to 4-5 days outside the Klang Valley).
