Tea leaf reading, also known as tasseography, is said to have origins in Asia, the Middle East, and Ancient Greece, with Middle Eastern cultures typically using coffee.
However, modern tea leaf reading began in the 17th century, when tea was introduced from China to Europe.
Now you can learn the art of reading tea leaves with this beautifully designed version of an Edwardian fortune telling cup and saucer. Reading tea leaves is a traditional divinatory method, and now The Cup of Destiny reveals the secrets of this ancient method, allowing you to make predictions for yourself and your friends.
Each kit comes with an actual cup and saucer and 96 page illustrated book explaining how to interpret the patterns you will find in your cup, as well as explaining the meanings of over 200 of the signs and symbols you are likely to see in the leaves when making a reading.
