WORLD MOST EXPENSIVE TEA GROWN IN CHINA?


An Yanshi gives thanks to the panda... gods? Who knew you could make a living this way
CHENGDU, China - Cinese entrepreneur An Yanshi is convinced he has found the key ingredient to produce the world's most expensive tea - panda poop. The former calligraphy teacher has purchased 11 tonnes of excrement from a panda breeding centre to fertilise a tea crop in the mountains of Sichuan province in southwestern China, home to the black and white bears.
An says he will harvest the first batch of tea leaves this spring and it will be the "world's most expensive tea" at almost 220,000 yuan ($34,000) for 500 grams.
Chinese tea drinkers regard the first batch of tea to be harvested in the early spring as the best and successive batches, regarded as inferior, will sell for around 20,000 yuan.
  • The 41-year-old, who is so passionate about his new project he dressed in a panda suit for his interview with AFP, has been ridiculed by some in China for his extravagant claims of the potential health benefits of the tea.
  • But he insists he is deadly serious, saying he quit his job at Sichuan University to throw himself "heart and soul" into his company, Panda Tea, whose logo features a smiling panda wearing a bow tie and holding a steaming glass of green tea.
While An hopes to make money from the tea, which he has planted on just over 2.5 acres (one hectare) of land, his main mission is to convince the world to protect the environment and replace chemical fertilisers with animal feces - before it is too late.
"Panda dung is rich in nutrition ... and should be much better than chemical fertilisers," Mr An said. "People should make a harmonious relationship with heaven, earth and the environment."
