New Book Review - Tea Cup Reading: A Quick and Easy Guide to Tasseography

New Book Review - Tea Cup Reading: A Quick and Easy Guide to Tasseography

The first third of the book introduces a brief history of tea and coffee, some tips to conducting tea readings, some ephemera about uses of teabags, and a seemingly random collection of other divination methods. Unfortunately, I was hoping for a researched history of how tea leaf reading developed but was sadly disappointed. The content of the book outside the illustrated guide could have used some stronger editing and more focus on enriching the reader's understanding of the historical context of tasseography.
