Here’s one I found up in Canada at China World I believe. The sheer amount of varieties up there is pretty intense – especially ones from this company. Curious how it will be. Let’s find out!

A vegetables sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added sping onion. The sweet potato thread hydrated well. A couple of crosscuts with a pair of scissors made them more manageable. They have a kind of gumminess and clinginess that makes them a big clump of food – nothing wrong with that; it’s just their way. The broth has a sour taste from black vinegar and a chilli pepper spiciness – I expected Sichuan peppercorn in here but really didn’t come across is. Included pickled sprouts were decent in the end and gave a nice crunch. Beans were well hydrated as well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6926410372633.
