World's most expensive tea fertilized with panda poo

An Yashi is a wildlife expert and lecturer at China's Sinchuan University. He's also a budding tea entrepreneur. He plans to market a tea which has been fertilized with panda poo, combining the cancer-fighting properties of green tea and bamboo.

Panda's have a relatively poor digestive system, absorbing only about 30 percent of everything they eat. Extremely rich in nutrients, panda excrement makes an ideal fertilizer.

Such a unique tea wouldn't be cheap. Yashi thinks he could sell it for around $36,000 per pound, catering to the selective tastes of discriminating tea connoisseurs. Yashi claims, "It has a mature, nutty taste and a very distinctive aroma while it's brewing."

Well, that's pretty much a given, isn't it?
