To get ready we recommend that you brew your tea and have a teacup ready before this class, so we can all have fun together!
Tea Leaf Reading General Guidelines:
The best cup: with wide opening on the top, porcelain or ceramic, light in color, preferably white and with no pattern inside.
Make a pot of black loose leaf tea.
Pour directly into the cups.
Drink your tea thinking about a specific topic or make a wish.
When only about ½ tsp. of liquid left at the bottom, swirl it counterclockwise or turn your cup from left to right 3 times, then tum it upside down onto the saucer, with handle towards you.
After about 3 min, tum it over.
Leaves on the bottom - distant future
Leaves near the rim - immediate future
Teacup handle - present
If there are no patterns, that means your thoughts are too scattered to read the leaves :(
