Hoi Tin Tong (海天堂) - ♕♕♕

Hoi Tin Tong 海天堂 is one of most advertised Chinese Medicinal and Turtle Jellies shops in Hong Kong. One always catches the annoyingly but funny Kung Fu styled commercials featuring the owner himself daily on TV. For recaps, visit:

It might be fun to watch Mr. Ng playing and portraying himself as an Ancient Hero, a delusion of grandeur, he even has a Turtle breeding farm in Hoi Nan in China.  But Mr. 吳耀明 only started his shop in 1991 -  its not as old fashioned or traditional as most  shops in town which have seen over 50-100 years of existence in HK!   In other words, this is pretty much a commercialised entity, mostly there to try luring in Mainland Chinese or Overseas tourists to visit..

It has many branches throughout Hong Kong…

Sounds promising on paper!  Really?

龜苓茶 -
Boiled from Turtle Shells and Poria Mushrooms, in Chinese Medicine,
this combo is used to relief Skin Diseases such as fungal infections or acnes that are related to high saturations of humidity in the air, or an imbalance of ‘hot chi’ within your body. These affect our system’s natural ability to neutralise them into equilibrium.  Does it work?  I can’t tell you! ~  8/10

茯苓膏 -
This is the Vegetarian ‘Poria only’ option of their famous Turtle & Poria Jelly.
Its set a bit hard and quite tasteless compared to many other shops’ offerings
within Hong Kong.  Worth a try though, or their proper Turtle & Poria Jelly.
Eaten with added syrup or granulated sugar ~
