Alibaba Beats Amazon to Drone Delivery

Chinese company begins testing drones to deliver tea.

Some 450 customers are expected to be treated to drone delivery during the pilot, which ends Friday.

A video posted online shows the tea-carrying drones flying high above the busy city until landing outside a residential building where the package can be collected by a customer.

Despite Amazon's tremendous push ahead in testing the drones, the company has been limited to private testing due to FAA restrictions on commercial drones.
