What is Tasseography?
Tasseography, otherwise known as tasseomancy or tassology, is the art of tea leaf reading.
“Tasse” or “tass” is an Arab root, meaning small cup or goblet.
Tasseography can be a powerful meditative tool providing insights into the reader’s subconscious. The significance of symbolism in psychological study finds theoretical foundation from Plato through Karl Jung. From a modern socio-biological standpoint, procedures such as drinking from the opposite hand, may coordinate left and right brain activity to stimulate creative problem solving. Common sense indicates that slowing down to focus and organize one’s own thoughts is an effective problem solving methodology.
The process of tasseography stimulates the imagination to create individualized interpretations and solutions. Tea leaf reading is a fun, healthful and creative way to listen to yourself.
