Hi all i know this is'nt anything to do with the paranormal but i was wondering if anyone had ever come across having a fortune told with
tea leaves i can vaguely remember a friend of my grandmothers doing
this when someone had finished drinking there tea something to do with the pattern left with the tea leaves.
I used to laugh about this if i remember rightly but she was deadly serious
So has anyone come across this.
Thanks

I dont buy this either. I had an aunty (me dads sis) who we dont speak to that side of the family anymore weird people!
Anyway she used to reckon she was Psyhic and she used to read Tea leaves. I used to sit and watch i was only around 13/14 years old. She used to say she looks for shapes. How can You possibly tell a persons fortune by looking into a cup. Dont buy it but its a personal view so everyone will believe differently.

i've read that certain shapes mean certain things, i've cut and pasted the following for people to read.....

Reading tea leaves or coffee grounds has traditionally been practised in many countries by the women in the family, typically at gatherings of family and friends. Tea leaf reading is also referred to as tasseomancy, tasseography or teomancy. Coffee reading is known as cafeomancy.

But this sort of divination has long been practised wherever there is a liquid that leaves behind some sort of dregs, whether it be tea leaves, coffee grounds or even wine lees.

First of all sit, down and enjoy a nice cup of tea. Remembering of course, that you need to make your tea the old-fashioned way using a teapot, so that you end up with some tea leaves! You need a teacup with a wide mouth, sloping side of cups, and a plain, undecorated surface inside of cup. Do not strain the tea as you pour it.

If you prefer coffee, simply brew your favourite variety of coffee and add a pinch or two of dry coffee grounds to the coffee so that there will be enough grounds to read. If you add the grounds before drinking, then let the cup sit for a few minutes so that the grounds sink to the bottom. Otherwise add the grounds to the remaining coffee dregs after you have drunk your cup of coffee. You will find that different varieties of coffee, such as Turkish or Greek coffee, are more suitable for coffee reading.

Part of the ritual of this form of divination is to actually sit down and enjoy the tea and the company of your fellow drinkers before you get started. This is not as silly as it sounds as it allows you to relax and also gather your thoughts.

Before you even start the reading , there may already be some early signs to interpret:

Bubbles on the surface of your tea or coffee means that money is on its way.
If any tea leaves are floating on the surface, then visitors are imminent. The number of leaves shows how many days away they are.
If two teaspoons are accidently placed on a saucer, then you can expect news of twins soon.
If a teaspoon is placed upside down onto a saucer then you will hear news of the ill-health of a close relative.

Finish your tea leaving a small amount of liquid in the bottom of cup of the cup. Holding the cup in your left hand, swirl the tea leaves round three times in a clockwise direction. Make sure that the remaining tea swirls around the whole of the cup.

Then, up-end the cup on the saucer and let the liquid drain away.

Coffee drinkers can use the same method with the remains of their coffee, or they can pour the remains across a plate and interpret the patterns that are left on the plate.

Now you can examine the cup and the patterns of the tea leaves inside.
As a general first impression, just a scattering of leaves inside the cup indicates a tidy mind and disciplined life. A lot of leaves indicates a rich, full, busy life.

Reading the Leaves
The cup is held so that the handle points towards the questioner. The handle represents the questioner and his or her home, and the tea leaves are read in relation to the position of the handle.

The rim of the Cup represents recent events. Leaves lying closer to the bottomof the Cup indicate events that are more distant in time. The very bottom of the Cup represents misfortunes.

Leaves that lie to the right of the handle indicate the future, and leaves to the left of the handle indicate the past.

The further away the leaves lie from the handle, the further away the events are in either time or even physical distance.

First take a quick look inside the cup to see if there are any signs that jump oput at you:

Any distinct drops of tea or coffee that remain in the cup despite the swirling and emptying of the cup, represent tears.
A very large clump of tea leaves indicates trouble. Near the handle - trouble caused by your own making. Opposite the handle - the trouble is not your fault.
Tea-stalks indicate people. Long stalks indicate men. Shorter stalks indicate women. Pale or dark stalks indicate colouring. Slanted stalks indicate untrustworthy people.

Symbols
The symbols and meanings that follow below can be used as a general guide when doing your readings. However, you may find that certain symbols have a particular meaning for you alone and vary from the meanings given below. Feel free to follow your own instincts when doing readings.

Like most divination - its not really the tea-leaves that are telling the future .. its your 'ead.

We focus on something like tea-leaves, a mirror, a scrying dish, a crystal ball or tarot cards to cause the consciouss mind to shut down or step aside thus allowing the unconscious to come and do its stuff. The conscious mind just gets in the way as it tries to rationalise and make sense of whats happening - when that happens, might aswell just give up and forget about it.

Tarot cards are a little different as they are full of symbology and the symbolism fires little triggers in our minds that aids in opening-up. You'll find on Tarot cards all the symbology you'll find in the occult - whether thats Wicca or Satanism - take your pick.

Tea leaves will work the same as the leaves will create little patterns that the pattern recognition system in our brain will form into symbols which again aids the unconscious mind in waking up. Your conscious mind won't necessarilly see them, but the power house will.
