It's a daily reading about life, love, work and money issues. In tea leaf reading, areas of the cup represent aspects of your life, and particular symbols have very specific interpretations.
Unlike horoscopes - another esoteric art form that offers guidance on your future - tea leaf readings, the art of tassology, are personalized to you - the drinker (and not shared with another 1/12th of the population that share your zodiac sign!). A reading will translate the blobs of tea leaves in your cup into meaningful symbols, offering guidance about your future and emotions - read on to learn how to do it yourself!
Originating in Asia and the Middle East, the UK has taken to tea leaf readings as heartily as it has taken to drinking tea itself! In Victorian times tea leaf reading became a popular parlour game. At its most basic level, tassology is a fun and healthy way to listen to your feelings. However, finding an expert to read your leaves for you could be tricky while reading your own leaves takes practice. Luckily, Tea.co.uk's instant AstroTea reading means you can have your leaves read without even putting the kettle on! Although we find it's always appropriate to have a cuppa by your side when browsing the internet...
Alternatively, ou can read the leaves from a tea-bag too. Start by clearing a space where you can drink your tea calmly and quietly. While you're drinking your cuppa, leave the tea bag resting on a spoon and once you've finished, squeeze all of the remaining liquid from the bag into the spoon. Pour this into the empty cup then tear into the bag. The ritual of tea leaf reading demands that each shaped bag is torn in a particular way:
Once you've torn your bag, let a small blob of tea fall into the cup along with the liquid and turn it as above... Leave for a minute until the liquid has drained away - you're ready to read!
