Time has made countless brands famous, but there are few brands like Tongrentang that have enjoyed such a high reputation or one as long as 300 years. It was 1669, the 8th year of Emperor Kangxi's reign, when Yue Xianyang made the decision to establish his first pharmacy to better serve his patients, Tongrentang was come into being since then.

In 1702, the 41st year of Emperor Kangxi's reign, Yue Fengming inherited the business of his father, Yue Xianyang, and established a pharmacy known as Tongrentang at Dashila, Qianmen, the busiest commercial center in Beijing. In 1723, the 1st year of Emperor Yongzheng's reign, the emperor himself authorized in writing that all the Chinese patent medicine of the royal court was to be provided by Tongrentang. With the 188 year serving the royal courts, Tongrentang confirmed the brand's leading position with special qualifications and solid capital.
