Tea leaf reading, also known as tasseography, is said to have origins in Asia, the Middle East, and Ancient Greece, with Middle Eastern cultures typically using coffee. However, modern tea leaf reading began in the 17th century when tea was introduced from China to Europe. Tasseography can be traced back to medieval Europe where fortune tellers read splatters of wax, lead, and other molten substances in their divination.
Pour the tea into your cup, ensuring not to use a tea strainer. Then, enjoy the cup of tea as you normally would, reflecting on the things that you would like to learn from your reading as you sip. Leave a small amount of dregs in the bottom of the cup. Swish the dregs around for a few seconds and then turn the cup upside down onto the saucer. Move the cup from the left side three times in a circle and then turn it over.
