Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan

Have I taken Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan? Yes. Who coerced me to take Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan? My Chinese father-in-law. His name is Wong Seong Keong @ Hussien - the youngest male from the 'millionnaire' Wong family in Kota Bharu, Kelantan (I think they are also millionnaires in Penang and Singapore too). Anyway, why did he want me to take Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan? My Chinese father-in-law is health conscious. He says even the Chinese Empress took it. What is the history of Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan? Read below.

History of Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan:
This is the story from my Chinese father-in-law. The story is from northern China, maybe Beijing. He says the remedy is a 'cold concoction', ie, used in the cold region. Here's the story from him ... The Empress of China was weak and the healers went in search of a cure for her. They concocted Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan for her ailment. She took it and recovered. The concoction was kept a secret and only given to the empress. Anyway, time passed and she also passed on. The secret for making Te Zhi Bai Feng Wan became public domain.

Chinese song:
Ai Mei
Ai mei rang ren shou jin wei qu

He shi gai qian jin he shi gai fang qi
Lian yong bao dou mei you yong qi
