Tea Leaf Reading
This informative book by William W. Hewitt was published in 1998 by Llewellyn Publications in St. Paul, MN. It is a complete guide to reading and interpreting tea leaves.
This book is divided into several sections which include the philosophy of tea leaf reading, how to prepare the cup, how to analyze and read the tea leaf symbols, how to interpret the symbols, and also provides a glossary of symbols.
This illustrated glossary contains more than 400 symbols, and also differentiates the 'zones' of the teacup. It will guide you through the interpretation of tea leaves, an airplane might mean you are going on a long journey whereas a hat would signify added responsibilities at work.
Hills signify spiritual growth, but a shoe means that you are going to have to increase your effort if you want to achieve your goals. Reach for the stars as a star is the cardinal symbol of success. It is one of the most powerful of all symbols.
It's not unusual to see at least a dozen symbols in a cup. Each one, left to your own interpretation.
