Reading Tea Leaves
Reading tea leaves meaning, also known as Tasseography, is a type of fortune telling which is done by interpreting patterns in tea leaves. Tasseography is native to some ancient Middle Eastern cultures. Tasseography is similar to the fortune cookie you receive at Chinese restaurants; it is just a fun little fortune to giggle at. It should not be taken seriously, because it is nothing more than a type of game (although some very superstitious people may take it more seriously…).
Learning how to read tea leaves meaning is very easy. All you do is prepare a cup of tea, with loose leaf tea leaves. Then, let the person who is playing the game / receiving their fortune drink the tea just leaving a little liquid at the bottom. Now, swirl the contents in the cup. Lastly, put the cup up against a saucer and let the remaining liquid drain. Now you can examine the remaining patterns left by the tea leaves. The patterns made by these tea leaves will give you your “fortune”. See if the leaves make any interesting patterns, figures, or shapes; and these are what determine you fortune. When doing this with someone it is fun to tell each other what each of you think the tea leaves mean.
Reading tea leaves meaning is a fun fortune telling game. So next time you finish a meal, and don’t have a fortune cookie around try reading tea leaves. This fun game won’t actually give you your fortune, but it can be a fun end to a meal.
