Tea leaf readings are a part of the art of tasseography, the act of using reading a splotch or smear for divination. The tradition of tea leaf reading is centuries old and has been known for its ability to offer insight on our most secret, complex thoughts and desires.
Tea readings are done by pouring unfiltered tea. The recipient drinks or dumps the liquid out of the cup, then the reader looks at the leaves that are left behind and the shapes they make. It can be used daily as a way to start or end the day, or it can be used as needed when the individual is looking for guidance.
