How do you use fortune telling tea cups? Move the cup from the left side three times in a circle and then turn it over. Generally, the tea leaf symbols closest to the rim are events in the near future and the closer to the bottom of the cup the tea leaves, the further away the event will be.
How do you read tea leaf symbols? The cup is divided into three parts. The rim designates the present; the side, events not far distant; and the bottom the distant future. The nearer the symbols appear to the handle the nearer to fulfillment will be the events foretold.
