The father and daughter team, both academics now associated with a literary agency, first talk about tea, including hints on brewing and growing your own. Even in this first part however, they include a chapter on the history of tasseomancy--reading tea leaves--which is the focus of the second section. There they explain how to get into the mindset, the compass and the cup, the meaning in the leaves, how to read leaves, and how coffee drinkers can play too. Distributed in the US by Independent Publishers Group.
