“Tea leaf reading is so intwined in our history that it would be difficult to find someone who hasn’t heard of it. Reading the leaves has circled the globe and made its way into almost every culture. It dates as far back as the Ming Dynasty in China and became a widespread American craze in the Roaring Twenties.”- excerpt from: THE STRANGER IN THE CUP: How to Read Your Luck and Fate in the Tea Leaves by Gregory Lee White and catherine yronwode
Tasseography, also known as tea leaf reading, is an ancient form of divination that involves interpreting the patterns formed by tea leaves in a cup. While some readers may use any type of tea for this practice, many believe that certain types of tea are better suited for tasseography than others. Here are some factors to consider when choosing the right tea for tea leaf reading.
Firstly, it is important to choose loose-leaf tea rather than tea bags. The reason for this is that loose-leaf tea allows the leaves to expand and move more freely in the cup, creating more intricate patterns that can be easier to read.
Another factor to consider is the type of tea itself. Black tea is a popular choice for tasseography due to its strong earthy flavor and dark color, which can create bold and distinctive patterns. However, green tea and herbal teas can also be used, each with their own unique properties and energies that can add depth and meaning to a reading.
In addition to the type of tea, the method of brewing is also important. The ideal brewing temperature and steeping time can vary depending on the type of tea, and it is important to follow the instructions carefully to avoid overbrewing or underbrewing. Similarly, the size and shape of the cup can also influence the patterns that the leaves create.
Ultimately, the choice of tea for tasseography will depend on personal preference and intuition. Some readers may prefer a certain type of tea based on their own experiences, while others may choose different teas based on the specific energies or intentions of the reading. Regardless of the type of tea chosen, tasseography offers a fascinating way to tap into the mysteries of the universe and gain insights into the future and the self.
