The teacher said that using the faeces as fertilizer can double the anticancer effect of the tea.

Experts however have said that although panda faeces can be used as a tea fertilizer, its anticancer effect has not been proven, and that "Panda Tea" may only be a publicity stunt.

The "Panda Tea" has been priced at about 220,000 yuan per catty (0.5 kilogram), 10 times the price of the most expensive bamboo-leave green tea in the current market.
