Koong Woh Tong

If you have been following my Facebook Page , then you might have already come across some photos of those tips and food facts. The actual fact is that all tea types are from a same plant called the Camellia Sinensis. The herbal tea on the other hand do not consist any part of the tea plant. The Chinese herbal tea, constantly known as medicinal herbal tea is a kind of tea made purely from Chinese medicinal herbs in Guangdong China. Since they don’t contain any part of the tea plant, I would say it is more of a tisane rather than actual tea. Because tisane is a general term for any non-caffeinated beverage made from the infusion or decoction of herbs or any spice like plant material, the herbal tea (also known as leong char) is better categorized as the tisane than tea.

 

According to the daily mail (2013), Herbal teas are all the rage for the many medicinal qualities they are supposed to possess. It’s claimed they can help with everything from easing a cold and indigestion to fighting infection and nausea.But when choosing a herbal tea remedy, make sure you pick the right one. While fruit flavoured teas – such as rosehip, apple and orange – tend to be delicious, they are developed for their flavouring more than anything else.Herbal teas on the other hand, such as thyme, peppermint and ginger have greater therapeutic virtues.

The Kwong Woh Tong originates from China and slowly expending their business to Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore. The outlets grow rapidly upon their arrival in Malaysia. Of which most are allocated in major shopping malls. In the older days, the herbal tea is something you purchase near the door step of traditional medicinal shop. Where else today, shops like this are getting so much lesser by popular demand in most places.

Here in Koong Woh Tong, there are two types of traditional herbal tea to choose from. One that is slightly bitter called the Wong Lou Kat and one that tasted a bit flowerish called the Five Flower Herbal Tea. I really like the first one. When drinking this, it is normally served with plum candy just to relief the bitterness from your palate. I like it even without it. Also available is their remedy medicinal powder to relief flu, cough, heat and or sore throat, which would be added into the bitter tea when consume.

Koong Woh Tong not only specializes in herbal tea but also the herbal jelly commonly known as the Guai Lin Kou. Its beneficial herbal jelly is made from more than twenty Chinese herbs which we believe it not only helps cooling down our inner body but good for our skin too. It is normally served with a pot of honey just so you can add it in to adjust the taste of this cooling jelly.

    At the branch in tropicana city mall, we underwent a hella uncomfortable service; one of the waitresses( short and skinny oldie), who shouted at us by fiercely talking back. We just wanted to drink a cuppa without wasting much time, despite she ordered(or asked) to wait until their re-tidiness. I really hope her to self exam what she did to her customers. Plus, this company must focus on educating its employees, rather than promote its goods via mass media. What a poor service! Tell her behavior herself from now on. Biz and service are never related to employees’ personal issues and stress!! “The rotten apple spoils the broth”

    I love Wong Lo Kat too from the Chinese Medicine Halls or even Koong Woh Tong. Much nicer than the sweet canned or bottled ones. In fact its better that they are taken without the sugar for the herbs to play their part better – well, the sinseh tells melah:P

      There is a period of time when I’m almost addicted to that bitter tea. Everytime I pass by one in any mall, I have to take one. Good thing the addiction is gone. Come to think of it, must investigate what’s the addictive ingredient. Lol.

      Before this is commercially sold, it was travelled from china down to the peninsular. Historical and geographical influences. That’s why least popular in east malaysia. It is so interesting how the origin of certain food tells us so much about culture and history. Like I was told yee sang is not as common as it is in the peninsular. I’m very interested with the local food there. I must explore the food there. I’m sure there are lots to learn.🙂
