This was a gift for my daughter, she loves tea and she loves entertaining. She absolutely thought this was the coolest thing, and immediately had some friends over to 'play around with it'. I would recommend this to anyone!!

                    Comments about Tea Leaf Reading Kit:

                    Take a really close look at the picture, because the pieces of paper you see are the total amount of "tea dictionary" included, and the large piece of paper is folded multiple times so that it fits in the cup, which makes it not so attractive once you finally get it unfolded. Also there's not much to the interpreting, just a long list of symbols and their meanings. I really think it's a cute idea, especially if repackaged, for instance in the Chinese takeout box someone else suggested. If I hadn't left it so late, and if I didn't hate returning packages, I'd consider returning it. As it is, I guess I'll spend some time and money making it look like a better gift.

                    This is a great little kit to get started with tea leaf reading!! I've seen some reviews about the cup being too small....hello!!..it's meant for tea leaf reading, not drinking a giant cup of tea.

                    I found the cup to be the perfect size. The instructions are clear and concise and overall I think it's a wonderful product.

                      I ordered this as a Christmas gift and was a little disappointed when it showed up. It is very cute but I was expecting a bit more, maybe larger or more info about tea leave reading for the cost. I am sure my friend will be delighted with it but not really what I was expecting.

                      You've heard of crystal balls, tarot cards, and astrology, but did you know that fortune telling through tea leaf reading, or tassology, is an ancient Chinese tradition? This kit provides a history lesson on the age-old practice, comes with directions for making your own predictions, and includes a ceramic mug and black tea.

                      Cute. I would love it if it were a Turkish Coffee Reading Kit.

                      The cup should be dishwasher safe. It's just a plain cup--if it had some fancy decoration I could understand the handwashing.

                      fun and interesting and a decent price. yes, have seen them in years past, but an idea to be recycled again is OK.

                      Cute idea, would make a great gift at the right price. Would prefer a more "authentic" mug- something patterned or pretty, or just the tea and info without the mug for a discounted price.
