Dubai breaks world record for largest cup of hot tea

Dubai breaks another world record by making “the largest cup of hot tea”.

The “tea cup” has a height of 3.66 metres, a top inner diameter of 1.42 metres, and is capable of holding a volume of 5,000 litres. A total of 120 chefs participated in the challenge at Global Village on Thursday.

155 kilograms of tea-leaf powder, 270 kilograms of milk powder, 360 kilograms of sugar, ginger and cinnamon were used to fill the cup. Mixed with 5,000 litres of water in 60 pots, the tea was brewed for several hours to create the best possible and authentic taste.

A Guinness World Record representative present at the scene recorded and validated the new record. Afterwards, the hot tea was distributed to the many visitors present to witness the achievement.

Apart from the largest cup of hot tea, Dubai also has the tallest building and largest artificial island in the world.
