CNY Gift Sets & Hampers

A time-honoured gifting tradition during the festive celebrations – gift hampers. What sets Wing Joo Loong’s gift sets and hampers apart from typical ones is that they contain truly high-quality premium herbs and sea produce such as the Four Heavenly Herbs (wild cordyceps, wild American ginseng, dendrobium & Tian Qi), Hokkaido dried scallops, premium sea cucumber, African fish tube, abalones, bird’s nest, and Korean red ginseng tonics. With all the good stuff that it contains, this is a gift that speaks volume of one’s generosity and would certainly impress any cooking lovers.

Available in different size variations from $98* onwards.

Canned Abalones

In mandarin, abalones (bao yu) have a parallel meaning of “assurance of surplus” in the coming year. Our abalones are harvested from Mexico, Australia and China. They are canned using strict food hygiene standards to preserve the abalone’s rich taste and tenderness. A much-enjoyed delicacy that is widely eaten especially during the Lunar New Year, these canned abalones are a popular choice for festive gifting.

Available in brine ($15) and braised broth ($18).

Cordyceps

The gift of cordyceps to your parents, relatives and in-laws will surely put you in their good stead this year. A rare ‘caterpillar fungus’ that is found in the high altitudes of Tibet and China, this highly prized herb is one of the superstars in Chinese tonic herbalism. Cordyceps can be taken as a tonic for general health maintenance to strengthen immunity, boost mental alertness, improve energy and fortify the lungs. As a harmonious herb that is both Yin-nourishing and Yang-invigorating, it can be used by anyone, young and old, safely over a long period of time.

Bird’s Nest

Meet the caviar of the East. Bird’s nest is a popular beauty tonic known for its high antioxidants and cell regeneration properties. Beyond its beauty benefits, it is traditionally used to strengthen the body’s immune system, nourish the lungs and relieve respiratory problems. It is suitable for everyone, especially the elderly.

Available in raw and bottled forms from $60 onwards. Enjoy 25% off when you shop at any Wing Joo Loong outlet from now till 31 Jan 2020*.

Wild American Ginseng

An herb that is commonly found in many homemade herbal tonic soups, American ginseng is a Yin-tonic that is cooling in nature, Qi-tonifying and yet calms the spirit. It is commonly used to strengthen immunity, improve mental function, combat fatigue and increase energy levels. As compared to cultivated ginseng, wild ginseng grows in the natural, wild environment with no pesticide and fungicide, and is manually excavated – making it very rare and valuable. Sourced from the motherland of American ginseng, North America, Wing Joo Loong’s wild American ginseng is of superior quality, with a natural pure taste that’s mildly sweet, rich and refreshing.

Available in whole-root, sliced and powdered forms from $388 onwards. Enjoy 25% off when you shop at any Wing Joo Loong outlet from now till 31 Jan 2020*.

Cheong Kwan Jang Korean Red Ginseng Metal Tin Roots

Did you know? Not all ginseng is created equal. Korean ginseng contains more ginsenosides, the active components that are beneficial to the human body, than other species of ginseng. In fact, Korean ginseng reaches its maximum effectiveness during its sixth year, the period when the root matures and its active components are the densest. Korean red ginseng is fresh Korean ginseng that has been processed through careful steaming and natural drying method, a process that increases the healthy components inside the ginseng root.

Contrary to popular beliefs that Korean red ginseng is heaty and should not be taken during the summer, this herb can actually be used irrespective of seasons. A boost in blood circulation is commonly misunderstood as increase in the body temperature. Korean red ginseng promotes blood circulation, which increases skin temperature but does not change our body’s core temperature. Its other health benefits include strengthening immunity, relieving fatigue and improving memory function.

Cheong Kwan Jang’s 6-year-old Korean red ginseng roots range is perfect for those who want the finest quality of the ginseng that is close to its raw form. If you prefer to have them sliced or powdered, you may request for complimentary service at Cheong Kwan Jang’s flagship store or any Wing Joo Loong outlet.
