It’s cold, very cold for Melbourne. This Thursday, 20th of July it’s predicted to be only 1ºC overnight. That’s icy! So let’s warm up with some winter favourites from Tang: The Asian Food Emporium. Premium Coffee, White Coffee and White Milky Tea. And Chicken Soup – from China, Taiwan and Malaysia – Warm, comforting and good for you.
Let’s start with Tea. From Gold Kili we offer their White Milk Tea. Each packet contains 15 sachets and provides a double shot of instant tea. According to its makers ‘Double Shot White Milk Tea is a rich, intensive, fragrant tea beverage’. It uses only the highest premium black (fermented) tea leaves. It can be served hot or cold with each sachet being suitable for one cup of tea. Each 35g pack currently offers a ‘buy one, get one free’ offer.
Also from Gold Kili at Tang we have ‘White Coffee’, an instant coffee sachet. Each pack contains 20 sachets. An Espresso style coffee, each sachet contains coffee from the finest Arabica beans, roasted and blended with a creamer mix. A rich coffee with a fulsome taste. Just add 150ml of hot water to the mix in your cup – sip and enjoy.
The latest offering from Gold Kili is also a double shot coffee, but this one is described as ‘Café Blanc’ style – frothy with sugar and inulin, ‘a natural sugar derived from plants’. ‘A velvety, frothy flavour’ – the Inulin is known to promote the growth of good Bifidus bacteria, maintaining a healthy ‘gut culture’ and ensuring a good digestive system. It comes 15 sachets to the pack and again offers the ‘buy one, get one free’ offer from Gold Kili.
Also from Gold Kili, there is the Kopi-O Kosong coffee variety. From ‘the finest ground Arabica and Coffee Robusta beans, this instant coffee is extra strong with no added sugar’. Place the coffee bag in a cup, add 150ml of hot water, steep for 2 minutes, remove and add sugar and milk to taste. Each packet carries 20 sachets and is packed and prepared in Singapore as are all Gold Kili products.
Who doesn’t like Chicken Soup? Here we provide a range of pre-prepared soup mixes to add to your chicken soup stock ensuring a healthy, fragrant broth.
From Masfood of Malaysia there is the Abalone and Herbal Spices mix for cooking Chicken Soup. No colouring, cholesterol free with zero trans-fats, this mix provides the basis for a slow cooked soup with a difference. Leave a pot on the stove during these cold days and warm up with a tasty soup.
Chwee Song is a brand from China. Presented here is a Fragrant Chicken Soup Herbal Mix. It is a mixture of Chinese Herbs (listed on the back) with purported healing properties, gathered from ancient Chinese remedies. It is believed a broth made from this mixture will stave off fatigue.
Bone Broths are now considered very nutritious and a healthy option. From Singapore try Rou Gu Cha from the Claypot Company, a ‘meat bone soup’ mix. Just add the filter bags in the packet with garlic to boiling water – no need to open the bags, add your chicken, beef, seafood or pork and simmer for 45 minutes – Ready to consume!
Similarly there is a ‘sweet’ soup from the Star Flower brand. Serving for 4, this blend is added to boiling water with 500g of chicken meat and simmered for 2-3 hours. It contains Astragalia and lychee fruit, Chinese yam and other herbs.
From Taiwan, manufactured by the Kong Gi May Food Co, we have a soup pack mix for a light ‘chicken liquor’. This mix contains Cinnamon, Angelica, Sichuan Lovage Rhizome, Wolfberry, Astragulus Root and Dried Date. With similar cooking instructions, the soup is clear and fragrant.
A1 from A K Koh is another favourite herbal soup mix. It contains a traditional range of Chinese herbs, but is relatively quick to prepare taking only 1/2 an hour. This soup is registered as Halal.
Lastly try the Kong Gi May soup mix for Stewed Ribs, and the Mas Food mix for Klang Meat Bone Tea Soup, both with unique combinations of herbs to please the palate. Or from Kee Hiang Enterprises of Malaysia you can select the original mix for Kee Hiong Klang Soup Spices – this variety has no preservatives or colouring added. It is believed to offer very positive healing properties to those who drink from it.
