Teaspoons

The teaspoon is a unit of volume equal to one-third of a tablespoon. One teaspoon is equal to around 4.9 milliliters, but in nutrition labelling, one teaspoon is equal to exactly 5 milliliters.

The teaspoon is a US customary unit of volume. Teaspoons can be abbreviated as tsp, and are also sometimes abbreviated as t, ts, or tspn. For example, 1 teaspoon can be written as 1 tsp, 1 t, 1 ts, or 1 tspn.
