Sanqi

Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-10-30

The Autonomous Region of Wenshan teems with Sanqi which is also called Tianqi. It got its names because it has three branches and seven leaves. (in Chinese, three is san, and seven is qi) Sanqi is a kind of plants of panax, Araliaceae. The uncooked Sanqi can stanch, strengthen the heart, dispel the extravasated blood, help the new flesh to grow, lessen the swelling, and ease the pain. The cooked Sanqi can invigorate the circulation of blood, enrich the blood, and thus make you much stronger.  In Pen-ts’ ao Kan-mu, or Compendium of Materia Medica, a famous work about Chinese medication by Li Shizheng of Ming Dynasty, Sanqi was called “Priceless”. The root, stem, flower and leaves of Sanqi can all be medicine. The usual way is to cut the dry root into slices, grind them and eat the powder. If it can be cooked together with meat or chicken, it will be even more effective. The Sanqi Steaming Pot Chicken is a famous traditional dish in Yunnan which can keep people in good health.
