Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has evolved a lot over the years. A practice that has been passed down from generations to generations, it is now trusted by many people, especially the Chinese people. TCM can be practiced by anyone who is qualified. However, there are many practitioners out there who are willing to ignore their patients' safety for money. Eu Yan Sang, however, has maintained its reputation by providing its customers with the best that they can offer.

I might be wrong that they are overpriced, but that's just my opinion. You can get Chinese herbs from any neighbourhood TCM shops and they would offer you the same herbs for a much cheaper price. However, unlike Eu Yan Sang, they do not provide services such as telling you how much you should take and what foods you should avoid.

All in all, Eu Yan Sang, although in my opinion is a little overpriced, has good customer services and it strives to do good for the general population!

Eu Yan Sang is the best place for me to get all the Chinese herbs and medicines. There are several outlets located island wide, hence, making it easier for the customers to locate them easily.

Usually, the shop is quite spacious, with all the medicines and health supplements displayed tidily. I would be more than happy to shop here because it is so easy to look for the items that I wanted, on top of the great customer service by the staff. Therefore, don't hesitate to ask for assistance each time you need them.

My mum would frequently get bird nest from Eu Yan Sang, but with a few brands to choose from, the staffs are kind enough to explain to us patiently which ones are the premium quality and list down the prices.

Sometimes, they would also serve the walk in customers hot ginseng tea, so as to promote their ginseng tea. It was refreshing and so welcoming. Eventually, I decided to purchase the ginseng tea and I ams till consuming it up till now.

Eu Yan Sang is definitely a recommended store to get all your traditional herbs and medicines. The stores are large and very bright lighting which makes a great shopping experience.

Love the american Ginseng Tea.

Thanks to all the stress and insufficient amount of sleep i was getting, i'm often feeling tired by late morning. In a desperate attempt to relieve myself from feeling tired almost every other day i decided to search for ginseng tea since i've heard my friend commenting on it's effectiveness before. Since Eu Yan Sang has an unrivalled reputation as the leader in the TCM industry, i believe their tea products will be of good quality and effectiveness.

Wanted to buy American Ginseng Tea but it was out of stock so i got myself the Wild American Ginseng Tea instead. A small box contains 6 tea bags and cost $20. I've no idea if that was considered overpriced since it's my first time getting Ginseng Tea. The tea bags contain a good amount of ginseng and i had 3 cups of 300ml, by then the taste hasn't even fade out abit.

I don't know if it was just my imagination, but i felt more awake throughout the whole day. Honestly even it was overprice, i'll still get the Ginseng tea from Eu Yan Sang, moreover there's 10% discount for PAssion card holders too. The staff at Hougang mall who was assisting me could neither speak english nor mandarin well, i spent quite abit of effort to comprehend her words.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine specialist sure needs no introduction, with its many stores all over singapore almost at every single corner or the neighbourhood. The convenience of the store is sure a plus to its popularity, and the very experienced staff that always have good recommendations always never fail to bring more customers in.

There are many chinese medicine stores around, I feel that this is one of the more commercialized ones. It caters to the crowds of the modern youngsters who are seeking for the convenience in chinese medicine as most of the things are packaged nicely and simply so that it is easy to brew and handle. Besides having its house brands of prescribed herbs, they also carry other brands of herbs that are packaged. What I like about this place is that everything is so simplified it makes chinese herb therapy so much easier. Instead of having packets after packets of things from the medical store, it can be easily bought in just one packet with the quantities already separated properly. Furthermore, it makes the smelly herbal stereotype of chinese medication all a myth because there are actually healthy products that taste nice!

A good alternative to the pills for medication and the vitamin tablets prescribed by the western doctors. It brings a more herbal and natural procedure to acquiring perfect health as to artificial unknown chemicals in tablets.

high-quality chinese medicine

Eu Yan Sang is a high-quality place to get your traditional chinese medicine at. Firstly, they have certified chinese physicians there to ensure that you get the ideal dosage of medicine you need. Secondly, unlike most chinese medicine stores out there, Eu Yan Sang has an in-house traditional chinese clinic to diagnose you before prescribing your medicine. Of course, if you do not need a diagnosis and only need to grab some simple chinese medicine that you are already familiar with, you can skip the diagnosis! It's flexible in that way. Eu Yan Sang also carries their house-brand chinese medicine and birds nest.

The prices at Eu Yan Sang are steeper than most chinese medicine stores out there. For the quality and service you are getting, its not too much of a price to pay for. Furthermore, you can be fully assured that your medicine are authentic and not just some random herbs thrown together with no beneficial effects. I really really like the tea eggs sold by them! So fragrant and full of herb-y flavor. The place is always well-ventilated and clean, very comfortable to be at while getting your medicine purchase done. I highly recommend Eu Yan Sang as a place for you to get your chinese herbs. You can never go wrong in terms of quality and authenticity here.

I don't usually go for TCM when I am unwell. However, when I am having a cold or cough, I would definitely go for Eu Yan Sang's pi pa gao. It is so good that it soothes my throat that very instant I ingest it. I usually take a tablespoon full of it just by itself. You can also dissolve it in hot water and drink it as a drink. I prefer the former method though as it seems to be more effective for me. Since it is so effective, you would expect it to be expensive. However, it is not at all. Hence, I always made sure that there is a bottle of pi pa gao at home.

Other than pi pa gao, my mum buys their herbal jelly, Essence of chicken and bird nest too. These healthcare products make good gifts for people who fell sick or probably, for your future mother-in-law.

Depending on where I'm, I usually go for herbal tea when shopping around, especially if I've to move under the sun. I'm one who gets "heaty" easily and if I don't watch my diet, a sore-throat for the next 2 days is a sure thing.

Although I usually purchase my herbal tea from those shops you find along MRT stations selling nothing but herbal tea, I was at Bedok Point last week after dinner and to my knowledge, there weren't any such shops nearby, I stumbled into Eu Yan Sang, hoping to find bottled herbal tea but not having my hopes high.

Luckily for me, I managed to find these bottled herbal tea in the fridge. Yes, it's more expensive than what I normally paid for, $1.80/ bottle but just from the packaging, it feels so much more atas compared to the normal plastic bottles I get from outside. The packaging has a smooth feel to it. I bought luohanguo that day. The taste felt great. It's hard to describe but I'll try. Compared to the ones I previously had, this felt a lot more substantial, as though more herbs have been used in the brewing process. It's also slightly sweet for my liking but acceptable nonetheless.

A point to note is that these bottled herbal teas from Eu Yan Sang have longer expiry dates, leading me to believe that they do contain preservatives or they have used certain packaging technology to keep the bacteria out for a longer period of time.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has always been a ‘thing’ for the elderly and Eu Yan Seng is one brand that manages to transform the whole idea of traditional chinese medicine into something that is practical, modernized and worth for value.

Loved their pre-packed soups! The herbs are fresh and value for money. It is a very good and helpful choice for working adults who has no time to brew herbal soups. There are many selections available and the friendly store assistants are always ready to answer enquires. You can just buy a pack of the pre-packed soup, get some meat from supermarket, wash them, and put them all into a slow cooker to boil the next morning before you leave for work. And in the evenings when you are home, you’ll have a pot of tasty herbal soup waiting for you! How convenient is that? =)

Most of their stores are conveniently located in shopping centers so all these gives you lesser factors to skip visiting them!

Mention Chinese herbs and the first store that comes to mind is probably Eu Yan Sang. They have many shops islandwide that sell various Chinese medicines and supplements. I would consider them a classier version of the more laidback Hock Hua. Their staff are well-dressed and informed about the various products stocked. Eu Yan Sang has products under their own name, which is a testimony to their quality. They also do not scrimp on advertising as they can frequently be seen on television or as sponsors for various Mediacorp shows.

However, I think that their products are more expensive than other similar variants. Perhaps this is due to their branding and long history, which then justifies the price tag. For someone cost-conscious like me, I would eschew them in favour of the cheaper variants. However, if you like quality assurance, then of course Eu Yan Sang will never be a wrong choice for you.

I believe in Chinese Medicine but we all know how unscrupulous Chinese people can be to the extent that some Chinese Medicine would be tainted with toxic ingredients. I believe Eu Yan Sang products are safe to be consumed but they are really expensive.

I bought Ling Zhi spores product before and they do help with insomnia as the product would make you sleepy. It is heaty though so one might have diarrhea, pimples and migraines after taking it. I think it also somewhat helped with my allergies but it could probably be a placebo effect.

I have not tried their clinics before but I think the cost would be outrageous since other chinese doctors already charge hefty prices.
