A tea company on the Sunshine Coast in Queenslandsays it has produced the world's biggest tea bag - capable of making about 100,000 cups of tea.

The giant tea bag weighs 151kg and is nearly three metres high.

Planet Organic says the tea bag will not be dunked in hot water because it does not have a cup big enough.

The company is still waiting for official confirmation it has set a new record with the tea bag, which is to be used to raise money for cancer research.

The ABC reports the current record of 120kg is held by a company in Portsmouth in England.
