InTEAresting Stuff

I found it so interesting when I read about people and how they read tea leaves as well as the meaning of the leaves when left behind in a cup.
Now I cannot personally say that I have any belief in it...but it is really neat to see what the meanings are. I thought I would include them here as read on the Tea Association of America's website so you can have some fun with it too :) Apparently you need to drop in the tea leaves, do not remove them once the tea has steeped, drink up and look for any number of shapes and designs found inside your cup to reveal your "fortune". I really want to find a triangle but want at least one cup per day to show me an acorn. You tea? I mean you too?

MEANING OF SYMBOLS
ACORN—Continued health—improved health.
ANCHOR—Lucky symbol. Success in business or in love. If blurred or indistinct just the reverse.
HEART—A lover. If close to a ring, marriage to the present lover. If indistinct, the lover is fickle.
HEAVENLY BODIES—(Sun, Moon, Star)—Good luck—great happiness and success.
OWL—Indicates sickness or poverty. Warning against starting a new venture.
PALM TREE —Good omen. Success in any undertaking. Single people learn of marriage. MOON (crescent)—Prosperity, fame. If cloudy, difficulties will be solved.
ELEPHANT—Good Luck—good health—happiness.
TRIANGLES—Unexpected good fortune.
BIRDS—Good Luck. If flying, good news from the direction it comes. If at rest a fortunate journey.


Tea Time! We drink it hot, cold, flavored, green, white, black, orange and many other forms! I have to drink tea every day, usually cold with no flavorings. It is a part of me being me :)

Your challenge is to scrapbook about tea whether it be tea cups, your grannies tea set, a beautiful tea pot or your favorite tea at the local tea bar. Come back and leave me a link to your online gallery so that I can come and post the project that you complete. All who participate will have their names thrown into my favorite tea cup and a winner will be RAK'ed! Please expect to pm your mailing info to me and all must be uploaded by January 31, 2008 at 11:59 Eastern time.

Drink up!
