Deep-tasting broth, herbal aroma
[Incha] Samgyetang Broth Pack (3 Bags)
Incha's Samgyetang Broth Tea Bags produce a deeply fragrant, herbal broth.
As soon as you open the package, you'll smell a strong aroma of Korean medicine herbs.
(It actually reminds me of stepping into my uncle's herbal medicine shop in Jeonju.)
Each tea bag is stuffed with 7 different kinds of medicinal herbs (listed below) that are each grown here in Korea - not sourced from China!
These broth bags produce a richer, deeper flavor than other Samgyetang broth packs - best for adults!
The aroma of the medicinal herbs is also much more pronounced - which older people really enjoy.
When boiling the broth packs, we recommend adding 6-8 cloves of fresh garlic and a few stalks of spring onion to the broth. The addition of fresh aromatics makes for an incredible taste.
If you've had Samgyetang before and prefer a strong herbal broth, this is the perfect product!
Note: 1 package includes 3 broth tea bags.
These ingredients are the real deal. I cooked it with five hormone free Akikawa (秋川) chicken thighs and red dates from the western regions. After drinking the soup I felt an impulse to immediately stand up and sing Arirang. Did some research on the names of these herbs, not that I am about to forage for them on some slope of Paektu. They are all herbs that increase your circulation and rev up your energy. To my surprise this ginseng is not the usual Panax but only a close relative. No matter, now I will live to a hundred. I think pregnant ladies should probably wait until after they deliver before they take this soup.

Samgyetang is one of my many favorite Korean dishes.. I really like the clean, refreshing broth created by the chicken and herbs. I have lived in places where it's difficult to get all the herbal ingredients needed, so I usually try to find pre-packaged broth bags. I've only tried two other brands besides this one, but this one (Incha) is by far the best. Personally, I really enjoy the herbal flavors in the broth and this broth bag provides a stronger herbal flavor than previous ones. For those who are sensitive to smells, this broth bag can give off a strong herbal fragrance, so it may be a good idea to crack a window open or run a fan while cooking this dish.
