What did Professor Trelawney see in Harry’s cup? In third year, during one of the Divination lessons, Professor Trelawney read the tea leaves in Harry Potter’s cup and saw four things: the falcon, a deadly enemy; The club, an attack; The skull, danger in your path and the Grim, a spectral dog which is an omen of death.
How does reading tea leaves work? 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.
What tea do you use for tea leaf reading? As the host, you can read the fortunes for your guests using tea leaves, or teach them to read their own fortunes. Dress up in a mysterious fortune-teller costume and light a few candles to really set the mood. Basic black loose leaf tea will work perfectly, although any loose leaf tea will do the trick.
Can you read tea leaves from a bag? The contents of a tea bag will not work: These leaves are too finely cut to create identifiable forms. It’s recommended that beginners use simple loose black tea leaves, but enjoy the process of selecting an aromatic blend that tantalizes your senses.
