The previous Guinness world record for the Largest tea bag was made by Lancashire Tea in Britain and weighed 132.2 pounds.
Guinness World Records also recognized the Largest collection of tea bag holders: Mimi Wilfong (USA) has a collection of 116 different tea bag holders.
According to Guinness World Records, the Largest tea dance world record was set by 306 couples who took part in a tea dance in George Square, Glasgow, Scotland, UK.
"We had several staff excursions last year where the entire staff pitched ideas for possible stunts and world records," said Pereira.

Staff members reported that the project took three weeks of planning in addition to several weeks of designing and building the bag, which proved to be a rather difficult task.
According to Guinness World Records, the Largest Tea Bag In The World had to be the correct proportions of a tea bag and be able to make tea once dipped in water.
"Getting the tea was easy," Pereira added. "Our art department guys were very smart and designed several vertical chambers within the bag so that it would keep its shape even when filled with 150 pounds of loose tea."
