The guy who narrated "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger" should narrate this documentary.

...bears that live at nearby breeding centers and eat wild bamboo as fertilizer, Reuters reported...

I'm pretty sure they don't eat it as fertilizer.

What the bloody Hell? I bet this guy was sitting around thinking about the coffee beans from the Indonesian cat. And he thought "I wonder what crap I could sell to the world. The Japs will buy anything if it is weird enough...Panda poo!"

Uh... he uses panda poo as fertilizer to grow the tea. The tea is not panda poo.

This is sensationalistic, misleading and disingenuous.

I say GOOD DAY, SIR!!

Even if it's the greatest thing in the world (which seems unlikely), someone had to have discovered this.

Makes you wonder what else this person tried that didn't work out as well.

"They keep eating and they keep producing feces," he told Reuters. "Also, they absorb less than 30 percent of the nutrition from the food, and that means more than 70 percent of the nutrients are passed out in their feces."

/So, if you wanted tea made out of what they eat, why not just make tea out of the plants, and skip the shiat taste?

//prolly tastes like shiat anyway.

He doesn't use the dung to brew the tea. He uses the dung to fertilize the tea plants.

An Yanshi's tea is grown in mountainous Ya'an in Sichuan province and uses tons of panda dung from bears that live at nearby breeding centers and eat wild bamboo as fertilizer, Reuters reported.

There's nothing to see here. This is a non-story.

Today I learnt a new thing: that Indonesian civet cats eat coffee beans. I'm glad I got out bed this morning.

All I can say is that pandas must have assholes made out of cast iron!

Think about it- Pandas spend all day eating huge quantities of bamboo stalks; they need to as bamboo has very little nutritious value, and they need to eat a lot to get enough energy.

This being the case, they must crap out a lot of dry splinters...

Vlad the Impala: Today I learnt a new thing: that Indonesian civet cats eat coffee beans. I'm glad I got out bed this morning.


The poorest people in this area sell every coffee bean they produce to make enough money to live. BUT they also love to drink coffee. SO they scour the jungle floor for Civet droppings, since they can have coffee beans in them.

Some charlatan discovered this novel method of scavaging beans for people who live in slums, and decided to market the concept to the most pretentious a-holes in the world .. and sells it to them for $150 a pound.

A true modern "emperor's new clothes" story.
