Although I am not a Cantonese, I love to drink soup and anything soupy. Especially before the time of the month, I have a habit to drink Chicken Essence. However, I have always find the ones off the shelf has a funky taste. Hence, I have decided to give Tian Yuan Xiang Chicken Essence (田原香滴雞精) a try as it has been raved by many people including my fellow blogger, Carrie Wong, Lin Chi-ling, Barbie Hsu and Fann Wong…etc
The parcel arrived within a week upon order and I am super happy that Tian Yuan Xiang has launched a non-chilled version. As it means it is easy for me to pack it together in my luggage whenever I travel because I always experience exhaustion and fatigue if I travel too often. So this is great for me to boost my energy level while enjoying my life to the fullest oversea.
There are a total of 20 individual packets in a box. A bit of background about Tian Yuan Xiang, it is an international brand with more than 20 branches world-wide, including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore and Guangzhou. Tian Yuan Xiang uses self-raised free-range native chickens (黑羽鸡) that are free from any chemical and hormone to make their Double-boiled Chicken Essence. The cooking method is a tedious process of following the ancient charcoal burning method in a ceramic pot with no water added to keep its authentic taste as well as aromatic scent. In addition, the oil was filtered away to reduces any unnecessary calorie intake.
The main ingredients for Tian Yuan Xiang’s Room Temperature Edition Original Chicken Essence (常温版原味滴鸡精) consists of Essence of Chicken, Wild Persimmon, Jujube Fructus, Lycii Fructus, Astragali Radix. While Wild Persimmon has great anti-oxidant and anti- Inflammation properties, Jujube Fructus aka red dates have been used in Chinese medicine to strengthen the body and boost energy. Lycii Fructus aka wolfberry or goji berry has also been known to protect the eyes with anti-aging benefits as well as to control blood sugar and Astragali Radix aka Huang Qi is used to enhance the immune system and treat ailments, such as fatigue and seasonal allergies.
Preparation is a piece of cake as all you need to do is to heat it up with hot boiling water for a minute and it is ready to be consumed.
Unlike other chicken essence, the ones at Tian Yuan Xiang is made by double boiling a whole chicken for eight hours.
Hence, it contains all the goodness of the chicken in that glistening golden liquid. Not only does it tastes like a concentrated chicken soup, it has no undesirable taste or smell. I kid you not, it is really light with a natural sweetness at finishing yet flavoursome and rich at the same time.
It is also good to know that this powerful concoction of nutrients is created by qualified traditional Chinese medical physicians and is made using Tian Yuan Xiang’s own supply chain of ingredients which includes the packaging. Oh yes, it is also the only double boiled Chicken Essence that is certified by Both Halal and Health Certificate in Taiwan. Hence, this can be shared with my Muslim friends as well.
