Souperwell

Souperwell will be offering free soup samples, and selling dry chinese soup/tea packs. Souperwell is rooted in the traditions of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), shaped by my grandfather’s 60-year dedication to this ancient practice in Kowloon City, Hong Kong. Our family, nurtured by these natural remedies, witnessed the healing properties of TCM firsthand. We‘ve seamlessly merged Eastern and Western influences to create Souperwell, an embodiment of this journey.

Our mission is to carry forward Traditional Chinese Herbal traditions and culture, ensuring their relevance for generations ahead. At Souperwell, we specialize in crafting convenient herbal soup packs and teas that effortlessly integrate time-honored practices into your daily life. What makes us unique is our innovative use of textured pea protein – a vegan meat alternative – infused into each soup pack. This addition reflects our commitment to blending traditional wisdom with contemporary nutritional needs, offering the best of both worlds.
