This Tea Tastes Like Crap!

Panda poo tea costing £131 per cup launched by Chinese businessman

Tea grown with the help of fertiliser made from panda faeces has gone on sale in China and is being touted as the world's most expensive...
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

Reminds me of the Kopi Luwak coffee.
Deep in the heart of the Sumatran jungle, where the roads are few and the people fewer, the stealthy Luwak roams free. This adorable cat burglar will make its way to coffee plantations when the crop is in season, using its superior senses to select only the choicest of coffee cherries. After digestion, these organic beans are gathered by hand from the rainforest floor and then taken by oxcart to an earthen kiln where they are gently roasted by a native coffee artisan.

I'm going to need this.

All natural vegetables grow on faeces. What's the problem?

Why I'm not suprised that this was from China.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

LOL!  Apparently, you've never gone to your local garden center and bought a bag of manure to put under your tomato plants!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Thing is I have never paid that kind of money for any vegetable. Brilliant marketing though.
