How To Read Tea Leaves
How to Read Tea Leaves Psychic Sylvia Browne, World-renowned Psychic Sylvia Browne pictures Reading tea leaves is also known as “tasseography” or “tasseomancy”. It is an ancient Chinese practice that spread to Europe with nomadic gypsies in the mid-1800s.
Any reader in a psychic parlor will tell you that the key to a successful tea reading is to make the tea correctly. First of all, you need to make tea with loose tea that is any flavor. This means not using a tea bag. Teas that are made of fine-grained dust work best.
The teacup you use is also very important. Make sure it is white or a very light pastel color and that it has a wide brim. You also need a wide saucer and a teaspoon.
To initiate the reading, boil the water and pour it into a teapot. Have the person who is to perform the reading toss the leaves into the teapot. Brew the tea without using a strainer. Pour the cups of tea and let it cool to room temperature.
Have the person to be read concentrate on a specific question while sipping the tea. Tell the person drinking the tea to leave a tiny bit of liquid at the bottom of the cup. Take the cup from your subject and, using your left hand, swirl it around clockwise three times. Then cover the top of the cup with your right hand making sure to swirl the leaves up the side of the cup.
Once you have done this, it is time to look into the cup and make your predictions!
