According To Google Fred Algorithm 2017

Google typically displays the first 50-60 characters of a title tag
as well as 160 characters of a meta description .

I think the ideal number of characters for the title is somewhere between 50-65 characters. A good practice would be to put the main part of your title (i.e. the keywords) in the front just in case your title is too long and the last bit gets ignored by google.

Meta description is longer and 150 words should be a good limit

It's funny, in all these years I never bothered counting characters because in reality it don't matter. Meta data and title are used for more than just Google. Any excess just gets truncated anyways and does not harm you if it's longer.

There is no rule as such as well as there is no penalty for lengthy title tag.
Ideally 60 characters have been considered good enough but one must not worry about it and put what naturally comes. (Not phrase)

Also, you need to use more than that, possibly you are aiming too much from a single web page. Divide the entire content based on categorisation and have 20-50 characters title tag for each page. For e.g. If it is a company website, don't have just one single products page and plan to achieve rank for all products via one single page. Create one page for each product and title tag for that particular product. Not only this will solve your worry abt title tag but also will help google understand each of your webpages instead of getting confused because of junk of keywords in title tag.
