With a maximum diameter of 24 meters, and a capacity of 28,360.23 cubic meters, the Meitan tea museum is by far the World's Largest Teapot Monument .

China's Meitan County is known as the "hometown of Chinese green tea", and the reputation of Meitan green tea has surpassed national borders, so there was really no better place to build a museum of tea culture.

Shaped like a giant clay teapot, and accompanied by a smaller building shaped like a tea cup, the Meitan tea museum is one of the weirdest looking museums in the world.
    Seen from a distance, it looks like just a strange teapot sculpture, but as you approach it, the windows give away its true purpose.

The previous Guinness World Record for the Largest Teapot Monument was set by The Chester Teapot was constructed by William "Babe" Devon in Chester, WV; it measured 14 feet in diameter and approximately 14 feet high.

Guinness World Record for the Largest Cup of Tea was set in Sri Lanka After 4,000 liters of tea having been poured into a giant cup with 10 feet (about 3.05 meters) in height and eight feet (about 2.44 meters) in width.

    Guinness World Records also recognized the World's Largest Iced Tea made in Tulsa, Oklahoma: a 2.7 m (9 ft) tall tea cup containing 912 litres of ice tea.
