"A small amount"

Here’s an interesting exercise to improve my vocabulary (and yours, of course).

Think of as many ways to express “a small amount” as possible and send them in. Here are mine; this would be updated periodically as the comments trickle in.

A small amount-

A tinge
Infinitesimal
Vanishingly small
Fraction
A touch
A hint
A swirl
A tiny proportion
A dusting

From Ob!ique:
A bit
A pinch
A tad
A speck
Puny
Miniscule
Itty bitty teeny tiny :)

From Sonia
A little
Unsignificant

From Vic
A quanta
A Planck scale
