Tips on reading Tea Leaves

Lesson in preparing for reading tea leaves.
Use a wide cup so the leaves have a chance to form symbols.
Make sure the cup has a handle because it is the starting point for the reading.
The handle is YOU

1. drink all your tea but about a teaspoon
2. make a wish but you don’t have to
3. swirl the leaves around the side of the cup 3x
4. turn the cup over onto the saucer
5. wait about 5-10 minutes to make sure all the excess tea is on the saucer
6. flip the cup over and hold it in your left hand.
7. start reading the images by the handle. These predictions will come true with a few days.
8. any symbols on the bottom of the cup with indicate the distant future. You determine the time frame prior to reading the tea leaves.
9. don’t try too hard to see accurate pictures because they usually are not clear.
10. Don’t rush the reading because you might miss some of the minor details
11. Practice as much as you can
12. Keep a tea leaves prediction journal

Reading tea leaves is lots of fun even if you think you don’t know how.
There are symbols around us everywhere. Many pictures you see within the cup are common sense meanings.
Remember to use a wide shallow cup because it’s easier to see all the interesting forms. Try it- you may surprise yourself.

WARNING: tea leaves readings are addictive. Only read them once a day. If you get into this habit, your predictions will not be more than a couple of days, possibly a week into the future.

  1. Hi, could u please tell me what it means to have a small person or child or baby in the very bottom of cup. I used coffee. Thanks Julie šŸ™‚

    • Hi Julie,
      Thank you for your question.
      A small person/child/baby in the very bottom of a cup can suggest a new situation. Sometimes it mean a birth of a child or even a birth of a new direction in some aspects of life. Often it indicates concerns about someone who is a dependent needing attention. I would need to know a few other symbols to thread a story together. Seaqueen
