Say this is part of a recipe:

1T baking powder
1/2T baking soda

Does that T mean teaspoon or tablespoon?

Thanks in advance.

Standard convention when not spelling out Tablespoon or abbreviating as Tbsp or tbsp is “T”

teaspoon is tsp or “t”

I’ve never seen it written the other way. In old handwritten or transcribed recipes, though, a tablespoon could be a soup spoon or a serving spoon. And a “teacupful”...

Thanks.

Now that I look at the recipe closer, I do see some lower t and upper T.

Cheers.
