Panda poo: the world's most expensive tea?

A man in China is trying to break the record for the world's most expensive tea - by making it out of panda poo.

College lecture An Yanshi has collected five tons of panda excrement to create a new type of tea.

He believes the rich fertiliser will give rise to a unique aroma that will make his brew a connoisseurs' favourite, which he will be able to sell for up to £50,000 per kilo.

'Pandas have a very poor digestive system and only absorb about 30 per cent of everything they eat. That means their excrement is rich in fibres and nutrients,' Yanshi explained.

'It has a mature, nutty taste and a very distinctive aroma while it's brewing.'

Considering Pandas only eat bamboo (and nothing else) it is certainly the most expensive herbal tea I have heard of. No doubt there will be a few idiots who will purchase this concoction just to be one up on their neighbours. For those who dont wish to pay that much you can actually buy panda poo for 20baht (Thai) at Chiang Mai zoo in Thailand Thats about 40p sterling at todays rate of exchange, It comes hygeinically wrapped and is sold as a souvineer. Just soak in boiling water for a few minutes then drink.....if you are brave enough. :unsure2:

My dad and me, used to raise Mink, which also have a short digestive tract, The ducks would run arround under the mink cages, and eat the poop (High nutritional value) Then we would corn feed em for a week and sell them to kobies Japanese restaurant. Love Omnaka

I thank him for enlightening me, here in Africa elephant dung are so nutritious that the dung beetle fights over it. What if i could capitalize on that idea?

For those of you that don't like Panda-poo tea, there is always civet coffee.

Yeah, that's what I thought of. What is it with the poop coffee being the most expensive? Ironically enough, civet poop coffee is also supposed to have a "nutty" taste. :mellow:
