Example How Many Teaspoons in a Cup

Units of Measure / How Many Teaspoons in a Cup

In the countries, where the metric system has been introduced, teaspoons and cups are rarely used to measure volume.

Before we start talking about how many teaspoons there are in a cup, we will mention that many people can confuse the teaspoon with the tablespoon. For the most part, it happens because of the similar abbreviations of these units (T., Ts., Tbls., Tb. for the tablespoon, and t., ts., tsp., tspn.). As you see, even if the letters are the same, the abbreviation of the tablespoon is always written with the capital letter “T”.

As it is stated above, teaspoons, tablespoons and cups are mostly used in the USA, so we will talk about US units of volume to give the right answer to the question, “How many teaspoons are there in a cup?” And this answer is simple:

- One US cup consists of 48 US teaspoons.

When you are going to calculate the number of teaspoons in some cups, just multiply the cups by 48. For converting teaspoons to cups, divide their number by 48.

The following table will give you a tip about how to convert US teaspoons, US tablespoons and US cups.

- The teaspoon (abbr. tspn, tsp, ts, t) is a non-metric unit which is used to measure volume. It is mostly used in the USA and is common for cookbooks and pharmaceutical prescriptions. One teaspoon equals to approximately 5 milliliters.
- The cup is a widely-spread unit of volume measurement which is used mostly in cooking recipes for measuring liquids and dry substances (sugar, flour, etc). There are different definitions of this unit (US, imperial, metric, etc). The US cup is equal to approximately 240 metric milliliters.
