An 18 oz teapot (3 cup) will pour 3 normal teacups or 2 small mugs. A 24 oz teapot (4 cup) will pour 4 normal teacups or 2 large mugs. A 36 oz teapot (6 cup) will pour 6 normal teacups or 3 large mugs. A 48 oz teapot (8 cup) will pour 8 normal teacups or 4 large mugs.
Keeping this in view, how many ounces does a teapot hold?
Secondly, the cup measurement used is 6 ounces, not the standard 8 ounces. This is based on 6 ounces of tea per cup. Therefore, a 4 cup teapot will hold 24 ounces which should be enough for four tea cups. Now you see that “cup” refers to tea cups not standard measuring cups.
Beside above, what does a teapot symbolize? For many of us a teapot means so much more than a mere vessel for brewing and pouring tea. The teapot is a symbol of friendship, of telling stories and confiding in each other. Like an old friend or a childhood toy, indeed like tea itself, your favourite teapot is a source of pure joy, comfort and reassurance.
Accordingly, how much water do you put in a teapot?
