I just know how much water each of my cups/pots holds. I usually fill them and pour the water into a measuring cup to determine the volume of a full pot when I buy it. I just eyeball it if I'm making, say, a half-pot.

This works for me because I have two pots, one mug, and my cups are effectively the same size. If I had enough that it was confusing, I would probably tape a chart to the inside of my tea cabinet to remember.

In my experience, they usually end up being slightly bigger than the size the vendor states, unless there is a gross description error (e.g. a 100mL pot I bought turned out to be 150mL). I really appreciate when vendors take the time to measure volume and describe it accurately like this ;)

Thanks :lol: And notice "approximately" is the magic word :wink:
