Aweto

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/11/2

In Qinghai-Tibet altiplano, at the elevation between 3,500 and 6,000 meters, there grows a kind of mysterious creature, which is aweto. As the name suggests, aweto is like a worm in winter, while in summer, it turns into a kind of grass. From the ancient time, Aweto is a precious tonic in classic Chinese medicine, also an ideal remedy of treating long-time cough and weakness, asthma, sputum with blood, ache of knees and waist as well as impotence and emission. The tonic also has a great potential of preventing and fighting against cancer and promoting beings' immune capability. Aweto, together with Panax and pilose antler of a young stag is one of the three top tonics in China. But because of the strict requirement of the growing geography and the complicated autoeciousness surroundings, the source of aweto is very rare. And also the picking is not easy, so the price of the aweto is very high, higher than Panax and pilose antler of a young stag. 

Tips:
It is fit to be braised with chicken or duck, also suitable to be dunked into wine.
