World's most expensive tea is grown with Panda poop

12:23 PM Nov 16, 2011

SICHUAN, China - An ex-university lecturer has been given the patent by China Authorities to market the world's most expensive tea.

At US$80,000 (S$103,520) per kilogramme, the tea is cultivated using Panda dung as fertiliser and is said to have antioxidant properties similar to those in green tea.

The 41-year-old entrepreneur An Yanshi was quoted as saying "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" in Chinese website Scol.com.cn.

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

According to a report by CNNGo, the self-proclaimed 'environmental panda calligrapher' hit on the idea of fertilising tea with panda droppings when a previous business venture failed three years ago.

Mr An has already collected six tons of panda faeces in Ya An Lu Shan tea garden and has resigned from Sichuan University to focus on the 'panda tea' planting wholeheartedly, added the report.

Panda tea is ten times the price of Zhu Ye Qing, currently the world's most expensive tea, reported Chinanews.com

According to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, an adult panda produces 20 kilogrammes of faeces per day, and the centre deals with more than 200 tons of panda droppings every year.
