World’s Most Expensive Tea - It’s known as the most expensive tea fertilized panda poo in the world and it sells for $34,000 per pound.

One may imagine that it’s made with curative properties, but using feces is bizarre.

A college lecturer, An Yashi, at Sinchuan University who is developing the product, explains, “Pandas have a very poor digestive system and only absorb about 30 percent of everything they eat. That means their excrement is rich in fibres and nutrients.”

Yashi believes that his tea blend may be able to fetch up to about $34k per pound. He collects the excrement from a panda breeding center in southern China.

Somewhat similarly, the world’s most expensive coffee comes from the droppings of the civet, a cat-like mammal. Who knew that feces could be the key to such delicacies?

Even so, most people will find it difficult to pay that much for a bag of Panda feces to make tea, but it could be a rich man’s hobby.
