The original Bugapoop Tea Bags.
If you've tried civet coffee you may like to try Bug A Poop Tea!
Bugapoop Tea is a special tea made from the feces of grain moth larvae. These larvae are fed on nothing else but special tea leaves that have been naturally fermented. As the leaves pass through the larvae's body they continue fermentation. Their droppings are handpicked and the collected droppings are dried and then further aged.
Bugapoop or Pearl Tea as it's originally known as in China is black in color, freshly fragrant, and has been used for a long time in the mountain areas of Guangxi, Funan and Guixhou by the Zhuan, Tong and Miao nationalities. According to historical records it has positive health benefits for fever, high blood pressure, digestion and it has good detoxifying properties. Whatever the extent of its health benefits, Bug A Poop serves as a good “cooling beverage” which has a higher nutritive value than regular tea. It contains 18 kinds of amino-acids, protein, Saccharide, tannin, vitamins, and microelements.
