From the article: Tasseography
Tasseography, or the art of fortune telling from tea leaves or coffee grounds, is popular in the Middle East. Also known as "fal," it's a method where an "expert" will search the grounds of leaves left in your cup from coffee or tea and tell your fortune based on symbols found in them. While just about any kind of tea could be used, it is mainly Turkish coffee that is used when using coffee grounds. Do you have your own personal experience with having your fortune told using this method? If so, share your experience below! Share Your Experience
