# How Many Teaspoons Are In a Cup?

There are 48 teaspoons in 1 cup.

• 1/8 cup = 6 tsp
• 1/4 cup = 12 tsp
• 1/3 cup = 16 tsp
• 1/2 cup = 24 tsp
• 2/3 cup = 32 tsp
• 3/4 cup = 36 tsp
• 1 cup = 48 tsp

Now, let's find out how to convert a cup into teaspoons.

## How to Convert a Cup to Teaspoons

To calculate how many teaspoons are in 1 U.S. cup, you need to multiply the volume in cups by the conversion ratio of 48 teaspoons/cup.

One cup is equal to 48 teaspoons, so to find the number of teaspoons, multiply the cups by 48 like this:

teaspoons = cups × 48

To convert a cup to teaspoons, substitute 1 for the volume in cups:

teaspoons = (1 c × 48) = 48 tsp

Thus, there are 48 teaspoons in 1 cup.

## How Many Teaspoons Are In a Metric Cup?

The conversion ratio is a little different for metric cups since they are a bit larger than a U.S. cup. Since one metric cup is equal to 250 mL and a metric teaspoon is equal to 5 mL, there are 50 teaspoons in one metric cup (250 mL ÷ 5 m = 50).

This means that the formula to calculate how many teaspoons are in 1 metric cup is:

teaspoons = (1 c × 50) = 50 tsp

So, there are 50 teaspoons in 1 metric cup. For a cook or baker, this can alter the outcome of a recipe, so it's essential to keep this difference in mind.
