A **teaspoon** is a unit of volume measure equal to 1/3 tablespoon. It is exactly equal to 5 ml. In the USA there are 16 teaspoons in 1/3 cup, and there are 6 teaspoons in 1 fluid ounce.

"**Teaspoon**" may be abbreviated as **t** (note: lowercase letter t) or **tsp**.

A small spoon, as might be used for eating yogurt from a small container or adding sugar to tea, is about 1 teaspoon in size.
