But the norm is people usually drink it a week after menstruation to replenish blood in our body, increase our stamina and strengthen the body. If you have a heaty body in nature, you may want to boil it with more water so that it is like soup texture and less thick. This Pat Chan Soup (八珍汤) could be prepare by boiling the herbs by itself or to add in black chicken and egg. The taste is less bitter and can be consume as soup for dinner for the whole family.
