One of my 2012 plans is to Embrace living in the country - by sourcing local services, activities and social events. So when I went in search of a fun way to celebrate January- Hot Tea month, with some friends, I discovered a Tea Boutique not far from our home ~ hosting Art of Tea Sampling paired with Chocolate, if this wasn't enough to peek our taste buds and curious minds a Tea Leaf Reading was also part of the tea service.
Tasseography or Tea Leaf Reading is a divination method that interprets patterns in tea leaves. The words tasseography , tasseomancy or tassology, originate from French tasse (cup) or Arabic tassa (cup) + Greek graph (writing), logy (study of) or mancy (divination).

What better way for three tea loving friends to celebrate January The Month of Hot Tea, than with a Tea Leaf Reading and chocolate pairing. Tea Leaf Readings were done by Candice Clancy - an Intuitive & Spiritual Medium, who is popular in Ireland, England and Scotland.
Upon arriving we were asked to choose a tea and once it was served, made our way upstairs to drink our tea and wait our turn.
Upstairs wonderful Dolfin Chocolate from Belgian, along with some (leaf free) tea, awaited our arrival.
After our leaves were interpreted we decided to stay and have some lunch in the downstairs restaurant. The food was beyond delicious, and we enjoyed it so much that we were all too busy eating and cameras were forgotten.
Have you had your Tea Leaves read ?
