Herbal Jelly at Koong Woh Tong, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Today I am with a new post to explain our recent bittersweet experience in tasting Herbal Jelly at Koong Woh Tong, Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

Last weekend’s Deepavali holiday led us to the vibrant city of Johor Bahru, where our taste buds were in for a delightful surprise at Koong Woh Tong. Our previous encounter with Five Flower Tea from this renowned establishment had left us craving more, and this time, we set our sights on their famous Herbal Jelly. Therefore, here is our review of tasting Herbal Jelly at Koong Woh Tong, JB!

As we entered the cozy outlet, the lively atmosphere welcomed us. I convinced my husband to join me on this herbal adventure, and he willingly agreed. However, being a fan of Five Flower Tea, he stuck to his favorite while I decided to explore the world of Herbal Jelly.

Opting for a small serving, I was handed a generous portion of Herbal Jelly in a sizeable cup, accompanied by a charming teapot half filled with diluted honey syrup. Although it was my first time trying this famed herbal delight, I learned that Herbal Jelly is not just a tasty treat but also boasts detoxifying properties.


As I savored the initial bites, I couldn’t help but invite my husband to join in. To my surprise, he willingly took a bite and instantly fell in love with the Herbal Jelly, momentarily forgetting about his Five Flower Tea. I was relieved to have a companion to share this unique experience with.

The Herbal Jelly had a distinct combination of bitterness and sweetness, creating a flavor profile that intrigued our taste buds. For those who prefer a sweeter touch, adding more honey syrup proved to be the perfect solution, making it easier to consume.

  1. I do like herbal teas, but I have never heard of herbal jelly. It’s interesting looking, and I would try it. That is part of going places, isn’t it? Or I should trying new things is part of visiting places. I’m glad your husband tried it also. And you are right, that is the cutest little teapot. I hope you have a wonderful T day and week ahead Amila. hugs-Erika

  2. That sounds……interessting. If it is a taste that would please me? I don´t know but I assume rather not. But tastes – as it says- are different. And that is good.
    Have a good time and all the best

  3. I have never heard of herbal jelly, but I have a few herbal teas I have enjoyed over the years. I think I would need to add a LOT of honey to the jelly, because I am not a fan of bitter. However, like your husband, I would at least try it. And the benefits are certainly good for you, too. Your tea pot is adorable. It’s a charming tea pot, indeed. Thanks for taking us to Johor Bahru, sharing your Five Flower Tea and your herbal jelly with us for T this Tuesday, dear Amila.

  4. Hi Amila! I sometimes drink herbal teas when I have a cold, but I have never heard of herbal jelly. Glad you enjoyed it, and even better if it has so many valuable properties for our health. Glad you had this nice outing! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. Oh this is a great post. I used to drink herbal teas but now use them strictly for medicine. I have made herbal jelly but I know it is quite different than what you tried. I would love to visit there to try it. Thank you for sharing and have a very nice day.

  6. Like almost everyone here, I have never heard of herbal jelly. It sounds interesting and I would definitely try it, even though I’m sure I wouldn’t be a fan since I’m not too fond of bitter and neither of honey syrup to sweeten it. The only herbal teas I occasionally drink are peppermint and chamomille, but in general I am not a tea drinker. Have a wonderful week, Amila.
