Classic Hot and Sour Soup

This is a very popular soup from Northern China where my parents are from, especially during the long cold winter. It is served very hotly and the spices will warm your heart, clean your sinuses, and make you sneeze. Traditionally the soup is made with tree ear mushroom, dried lily buds, winter bamboo shoots, fresh pork blood, and white pepper.
