Last yr, my friend MY borrowed me a few recipe books she bought from HK, and I found the recipe of making this tong shui, it is so wonderful! After trying out once, bro & me were so satisfied with the taste, it was just like those we bought! Therefore, every now and then, when bro craved for this tong shui, he'd begged me for it, oh yeah! Really begging... It was so fun to see him begged for a tong shui, hehehe....
So, here is the recipe:
30g 桑寄生(Chinese Herbal Taxillus Twing, it sounds as sang ji sheng in Mandarin, u can buy it from Chinese herbs shop, to be exact, we need 1 兩)
1 liter water
100g rock sugar
- Wash & clean eggs (the shell, careful not to break it ;p)
- Wash 桑寄生, drain well. Place eggs, water into a pot, cook on low fire for 30 minutes.
- Take out eggs from tea, rinse with cold water, remove shell, set a side
- Continue simmering the herb tea for 15 minutes, strain off the herbs, put in eggs and rock sugar, simmer for another 10 minutes, ready, serve while warm
The tea taste good, but after breaking the egg, or while eating the egg with the soup, it brought out another flavor, which enhanced the yumminess more.
I enjoyed 1 egg only this time, the rest went to bro, to serve his giant crave, happy feasting, bro!
P/s This 桑寄生 herb, has good curing effects for liver and kidney, may also help to cure insomnia.
