Tasseography

Hey Insiders! Welcome to the Well. Tonight I’m going to take a look at tasseography, which is the art of reading tea leaves. I’ve personally never done this before, but I am drawn to learning more about it because it’s a really accessible process and requires you to perceive shapes and symbols in the tea leaves. This seems creative, intuitive, and meditative – and I’m really excited to try it out!

So how do you conduct a tea reading?

Add a pinch of your tea leaves to a cup (it’s important that you use loose tea), and then pour your boiling water into the cup. Allow the tea to steep for a few minutes. Enjoy your cup of tea, leaving the tea leaves and only a small amount of water in the cup. Oh yeah, you will need a saucer for your cup.

I am going to share with you an excerpt from teausa.com that details the next steps in the process:

Now you will analyze the leaves to see if you recognize any shapes or symbols. If you have a particular issue you want consultation on, you can focus your energy on it as you are preparing your reading. Otherwise, you will be having a general reading.

You can look for your own symbols, or you can refer to an existing list of symbols and their meanings.

Have you ever done a tea reading? I’d love to hear about it in the comments. Thanks for stopping by the Well!
