A girl holds up tea leaves collected from a plantation fertilized with panda droppings in China’s Sichuan province, Saturday March 17, 2012. The tons of excrement come from panda bears living at nearby breeding centers. Businessman An Yanshi wants to sell 21 commemorative sets packaged with 50 grams of the tea, panda themed tea sets and his own art works for the price of around 22,000 yuan, or $3,500. Individual cups of tea will cost $200.
