So how does it work exactly? There’s a lot of speculation on the accuracy of tea leaf reading to actually predict the future, but even if you’re not a believer then it’s still a really fun thing to try over afternoon tea.
When finishing off a cup of loose leaf tea, leaves often line the sides and base of the cup.
The idea behind reading tea leaves is that whilst drinking, a person’s movements affect the leaves swirling around so that when they settle the shapes are unique to them.
It is then up to the reader to interpret these shapes.
