    Default 80, gram or number?

    Please set me clear on the following in red.


    100g Nescafe Instant 2.49pounds

    100g Gold Blend 3.39pounds

    80 Tetley teabags 1.79pounds

    250g Lavazza coffee 3.29pounds

    Does 80 in the above refer to "gram" or "the number of the teabags"?

    Thank you.

    The number of teabags.

    Note that '2.49pounds' should be written 2.49, and read as 'two pounds forty-nine'.

    Oh, money pounds. I thought those were awfully heavy tea bags.
