      Great point but to add a large scope on the question.

      Do you have a health issue to address?

      Do you want to maintain you general good health?

      Do you want to have natural herbs to add to your diet?

      One has to define what they are looking for.

      Not sure if they still have Tung Fong Hung Medicine shop in Chinatown, but I would highly recommend it, especially if you are new to herbal medicine. Tung Fong Hung is a trusted brand(so you know you will get exactly what you asked for).
      Tung Fong Hung Medicine Co. Ltd. (Main St, Vancouver
      G/F - 536 Main St, Vancouver, BC,

      There are also other locations:
      147-4800 Kingsway, Burnaby,

      8031 Alexandra Rd, Richmond BC

      954 Lansdowne Centre, Richmond,

        Tung Fong Hung chain of shops in Vancouver has closed.
        Anyone who knows of similar shops selling good quality dried seafood with good packaging as gifts in Vancouver?
