Man manufactures tea from panda droppings

An Yanshi is attempting to produce the world's most expensive tea out of panda excrement.
"Pandas have a very poor digestive system and only absorb about 30 per cent of everything they eat," he said. "That means their excrement is rich in fibres and nutrients." The college lecturer has managed to collect five tons of panda droppings from the Giant Panda breeding centre in Chengduand and hopes to sell his unique brew for over $100,000 per kilo.
Yanshi, who collects the poo by the lorryload from the Giant Panda breeding centre in Chengdu, Sichuan province, southern China, aims to secure the Guinness World Record once his first batch of the expensive blend is ready for sale.
