I read it as a tablespoon of water, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. That's going by the capital t being a tablespoon, the small t a teaspoon. Gotta love speech-only reading. :) I didn't know either until I read character by character.

LOL and the others I will say the same I feel silly asking this but please forgive me. Thank you in advance and as for the cinnamon is it 1 tablespoon or teaspoon, I know cinnamon goes a long way.
