Join Grandmother Christine at Botanista for an afternoon of tea leaf reading, fun and divination! Bring your friends and family, your favourite tea cup and learn the symbology and basics of tea leaf reading.
Before there were tea bags, tea was more than just a quick dunk of the Tetleys and off you went – drinking tea was a ritual that brought people together. Groups would gather together to gossip, drink tea and divine their futures in the leaves left in the bottom of their cups. Symbols came to have common meanings, and the tea cup itself could tell you when to expect things to happen!
Grandmother Christine will draw you into the history and rituals behind tea leaf reading; share how you can read different leaves, both herbal and traditional black tea leaves; and help you to read the symbols in your own tea leaves.
We invite you to bring your own teacup and/or teapot that holds meaning for you- maybe something passed down – and we’ll serve your tea in your own meaningful wares. Don’t have anything to bring? Don’t worry, we have beautiful china teacups here for you to choose from.
You’ll enjoy a pot of tea and cupcake, a tea leaf reading demonstration from Grandmother Christine, and a practice at reading your own leaves under Christine’s guidance. You will also receive a signed copy of Christine’s book ‘Forecasting your future with Tea Leaves’ which retails at $15!
