Wildlife expert An Yanshi wants to achieve a Guinness World Record by making the most expensive tea in the world using panda poo, the Telegraph said.

Yanshi 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 fibres and nutrients…It has a mature, nutty taste and a very distinctive aroma while it's brewing."

He hopes to sell his unique tea for up to £50,000 per kilo, from the panda poo he collects from the Giant Panda breeding centre in Chengdu, Sichuan province, southern China.

So far, he has collected around five tons of panda excrement to create the new brand type of tea.
