# How many Teaspoons in a Tablespoon ?

I was asked the question “How many Teaspoons in a Tablespoon ?” and to be honest, I wasn’t sure, so I said about 3 or 4.

I should have asked the question how big is your tablespoon ? ðŸ˜‰

However, I did need to find out for sure, so:

1 Tablespoon [US] = 3 Teaspoons [US]
1 Tablespoon [Metric] = 3 Teaspoons [Metric]
1 Tablespoon [UK] = 4 Teaspoons [UK]

BUT…

1 Tablespoon [UK] = 4 Teaspoons [UK]

and

1UK tblsp = 3UK tsp
1US tblsp = 3US tsp

So, which is right?

THE FACTS

1 US Teaspoon is 4.92892 ml (Milliliter)
1 UK Teaspoon is 5.91939 ml
1 US Tablespoon is 14.7868 ml
1 UK tablespoon is 17.7582 ml

1 US Teaspoon = 0.832674 UK Teaspoon
1 US Tablespoon = 0.832674 UK Tablespoons

1 US Tablespoon = 3 US Teaspoons
1 UK Tablespoon =Â 3 UK Teaspoons

1 US Tablespoon = 2.49802 UK Teaspoons
1 UK Tablespoon = 3.60285 US Teaspoons

Hope everything is now clear ðŸ˜€

If not….

ONE Tablespoon is about THREE Teaspoons

Oh, but wait… What about Chinese made teaspoons ?
