World’s Largest Cup Of Tea

And you thought you drank a lot of tea. Well, no matter how much you drink it's a mere drop in the teacup compared to what took place at Mercy Health Center, in Fort Scott, Kansas a little while back.

As reported in the local paper, the Morning Sun, "The cup held 700 gallons of tea. The tea alone weighed more than two and a half tons, and served almost 15,000 servings. The teacup, created by J.D. and Ed Webster, is 9.5 feet wide at the rim, has a three foot handle, and stands 5.5 feet tall." No word on what kind of tea was served.

What amazes me is that by these measurements the cup doesn't seem like it would be big enough to hold so many servings. I guess my eyes are bigger than my thirst in this case.
