I always adore Chinese tonic soup for its comforting and nourishing qualities. I brothed Chinese Herbal Black Chicken Soup today and still feeling the overall well-being is boosted up hours after consuming it. :) Your photos look great!

I've just bought the ingredients to try this soup. But don't know why the dried longan I bought is the black type, not the beige colour in your photo. The soup is dark in colour :(
