Tasseomancy

Nature's key to the future

As the popularity of tea drinking increased, it was noticed that the dregs left in a cup after drinking formed patterns. These resembled everyday images and symbolised 'character' and 'destiny'. Thus the art of Tasseomancy was born.

Hot tea poured in a white or cream colored cup is swirled thrice. The cup is then turned upside down on a saucer to drain the liquid off. The reading is one from the dregs left behind in the cup. Leaf-formations closest to the rim indicate immediate occurrences whereas those at the bottom signify future happenings. Formations near the cup-handle imply home affairs. Work situation and business matters are related to those on the opposite side.
