World's Largest Sweet Tea
Chick-fil-A Sets Guinness World Record With World's Largest Sweet Tea
(from a press release)
On Wednesday, Aug. 4, Tulsa-area Chick-fil-A restaurants set a Guinness World Record by creating the world's largest sweet iced tea. A nine-foot tall cup held more than 1,140 gallons of freshly brewed sweet tea and ice. The record was set during an all-day celebration at Nienhuis Park in Broken Arrow, Okla.
Operators and team members from five Chick-fil-A restaurants worked with volunteers from schools, churches and community groups throughout the Tulsa area to create the record-setting drink. The process required 72 pounds of tea leaves, 1,150 pounds of sugar, one ton of ice and 912 gallons of water.
Official Guinness World Records adjudicator Kimberly Partrick presided over the event and officially called the record. The achievement marks the second Guinness World Record for Tulsa Chick-fil-A Operator Arthur Greeno, who set the record for world's largest soft drink when he created an 834-gallon cup of freshly-squeezed Chick-fil-A lemonade in 2008.
