Putting the bamboo in bamboozled

I've got to admit that I don't know a whole hell of a lot about what makes a really good cup of tea, but I know that I won't be buying any of this:
China's national treasure, the giant panda, will become even more precious if one businessman succeeds in using their dung to grow organic green tea he intends to sell for over $200 a cup.
It's not just that I don't have $200 to spend on a single cup of tea (okay, yes, that actually is the only reason, but humor me here) it's that I really don't see why one should have to pay an exorbitant premium for a product based on the shit that it grows in.

Unless it gives you super powers. Pandas don't have any super powers, right?
