  1. Hi,

    hw can i improve the taste?


  2. Hi Adeline,

    Em....this soup is actually abit sour due to the Tian Ma & Black Dates but then u can actually improve it by adding more red dates(must use those sweet type) or u can switch the fish to chicken instead. Usually i just boil the tian ma with gou qizi and some water and drink it just like normal plain water.....:)
