From Mystic Tea Room
Fortune Telling Tea Cups appeal to four social communities, namely, Those who perform divinations with tea leaves, those who are sitters or querents of tea leaf readers, those who collect fancy and novel tea cups, and those who collect the tools of divination in general. Many people (myself included) belong to more than one of these communities -- and these links will help you find more information about all four commmunities.
