The Meitan Tea Museum is a uniquely shaped building that resembles a teapot, and it is located in the Meitan County, which is part of the Province of Guizhou, within the People’s Republic of China. Even though it is considered by some people to be a strange architectural piece in the county, it is definitely the perfect place to build a large building in the shape of a teapot, due to the reputation Meitan holds as the hometown of the Chinese green tea which is very famous outside China.
Measuring a height of 74 meters (243 feet) above the ground, the maximum diameter is 24 meters (79 feet) and with the capacity of 28 million cubic meters (989 million cubic feet) it is definitely the largest teapot building in the world. In addition to the giant clay teapot, there is another building that has the form of a tea cup which together seen from a distance look like a large and somewhat weird sculpture, but as one moves closer to the building, the windows give away its true purpose. The Meitan Tea Museum is definitely something worth seeing to all those tea lovers who would like to enjoy a majestic Chinese tea and to marvel at the architectural masterpiece which is known all over the world as the Guinness World Record holder for the largest teapot shaped structure.
