Panda Poo Tea About To Hit The Market

Filed under: HealthIcky Icky Dog PooPanda

We previously mentioned that a man was growing green tea using panda poo as fertilizer.

Well now it's only a few weeks away from going to market!

The panda poo is supposed to give the tea extra benefits because pandas only absorb about 30% of the nutrients they eat so their poo is actually very nutrient rich.

Still gross though.

Check out the above vid to see the panda poo fertilizer being handled and the tea-making in action.

World's Cutest Baby Sloths' Bath Time

Filed under: HealthCuteness!Sloth

Out of all the times for baby sloths, baby sloth bath time seems to be the cutest.

These insanely cute little guys get a nice shampoo in a leaf-infused tea bath that cleans dirt out of their fur and also keeps them bacteria and parasite free!

After bath time, which can be a little stressful for some of the sloths, they are treated to hibiscus flowers, which is like chocolate to sloths.

So cute! We wanna bathe a baby sloth!

World's Most Expensive Tea Made With Panda Poop

Filed under: HealthIcky Icky Dog PooPanda

A professor at Sinchuan University in China will make the world's most expensive tea.

It is normal green tea, but it will be fertilized with panda poo.

Gross.

It will cost $80,000 per kilogram! That's about $34,000 for just a pound of tea.

The professor claims it's worth the price because of the special health benefits. He said:

"Pandas have a very poor digestive system and only absorb about 30 percent of everything they eat. That means their excrement is rich in fibers and nutrients."

When asked how it tastes, he said:

"It has a mature, nutty taste and a very distinctive aroma while it’s brewing."

Yeah, we'd bet it's "distinctive." And nutty? Yuck.

He really does believe there are serious health benefits to the beverage. He said:

"Just like green tea, bamboo contains an element that can prevent cancer, and enhance green tea’s anti-cancer effects, if it is used as fertilizer for the tea."

Sounds like a great idea, we're just not sure who would go for tea at those prices.

We can only assume he hopes to attract buyers with the power of panda poop.
