It’s not the actual poo. We thought we’d break that to you, but the nutrients from the panda excrement is being used as fertilizer for a special tea that definitely soaks in the goodness from the panda’s diet.

An Yanshi, below bought 11 tons of feces from the ass of a panda and is growing this specialty tea.
What do panda’s eat? Bamboo! What’s Bamboo associated with? Long Life.
