What does the cup say? Join us with instructor Jezmina Von Thiele (they/she) to learn the history and methods of tea leaf + coffee ground reading!

Have you ever been curious to know what a simple cup of herbs or coffee grounds could tell you? To bring their symbols and messages to life, just add water. In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to learn the origins and techniques of tea leaf & coffee ground reading (also known as tasseomancy or tasseography), as well as grow in their divination skills while gaining relevant and essential knowledge regarding history and cultural context. Jezmina is of mixed Sinti Romani heritage, and learned these practices from their grandmother. They have been reading professionally ever since.


Together we will cover:
-a ritual for tea leaf and coffee reading
-different tea leaves and how to approach them
-common symbols found in the cup
-practices for developing your intuition
-the cultural and historical context for this form of divination, as well as how to respectfully engage with it.

You will be emailed a PDF of notes after the class, so note taking during class is encouraged if you find it helpful, but it’s not necessary.


Other materials that you will need are a teacup, ideally with a shallow round bottom, and a saucer. If you have a teapot without a strainer in the spout, that is a great, but you can do without it. You will also need loose leaf tea leaves, sold and labeled as such. I do not recommend cutting open a teabag because the leaves are too finely cut. You will also need the ability to boil water, as you will be making a cup of tea and drinking it during the class, and interpreting the leaves left at the bottom. For examples of suitable tea cups, visit Jezmina’s Etsy shop, Evil Eye Edit, and you can take 25% off any items you may wish to purchase with code JEZMINA at checkout.
