A Taste of Traditional Chinese Medicine 2019-06-24
Traditional Chinese Medicine continues to grow in taste and is even now being chosen as one of the finest ingredients in any top hotel spa. You can trace its roots at the Hu Qing Yu Tang Museum of Traditional Chinese Medicine and located off Hangzhou’s famous Hefang Street this is one of China’s architectural gems.

In the museum there are numerous jars preserved with all sorts of concoctions from a variety of plants to squares of tiger-bone and deer-horn gelatin. You can also visit the nearby clinic to get your qi (energy) diagnosed and watch your herbal prescription being prepared in the pharmacy.


Finally why not wrap up the visit with a TCM-inspired meal at the restaurant nearby the museum, a mouth-watering experience that balances sweet, sour, bitter and pungent tastes. So if you have a healthy interest in both architecture and Chinese medicine this ‘King of Medicine’ as it was known in the 19th century is a good place to visit.
