Buy and send this tea leaf reading gift set, it's more than just a greetings card and guaranteed to be lots of fun!!!

Posted by Alison Appleton on

Over the last ten years, as you would imagine we have held many tea related events such as tea tastings and on the odd occasion tea leaf reading sessions, also know as tasseography or tasseomancy. These started out as a bit of amusement but to our amazement we found the events hugely popular, very revealing and lots of fun. 

If you have not tried the historic art of divination or fortune telling through reading used tea leaves perhaps its time to give it a go? Our tea leaf reading gift set has been designed to be personalised, the label on the the padded silver envelope is appropriately addressed, inside we include a gift card with your message along with the guide to reading the leaves and the perfect loose leaf tea, once instructions have been followed anyone will find it easy to see shapes inside the cup. We have condensed information that could otherwise take hours of research on-line.

You will need a kettle, a pot or jug (our Rosie porcelain teapot is on sale at the moment, if you remove the integral filter it makes the ideal pot for tea leaf reading) and preferably a cup and saucer with a white or pale interior so you can easily see the shapes made by the leaves.

Its important to have an open mind and be nice and relaxed, don't worry about not finding any meaning, divination works on intuition, all those signs and feelings that surround us that out of politeness and habit we don't tune into, they will be visible in the cup. We have had the most extraordinary readings, we have seen new business', trips abroad, new jobs and of course lots of romance.

We all enjoy a little light diversion, if you have a friend who is in a fix, uncertain what to do or you just want to send a bit more than a card this little pack delivers at least a fun filled hour, it may even lead to something more!

A basic list of shapes and their meanings is included in the pack but if you find a shape and it's not there you can check the more extensive list below.
