Title: Tea Witch
Description: Women believed to be witches were often healers, and remedies (such as types of tea) were used for their medicinal properties. Tasseography (tea leaf reading) rose in popularity during the 17th century and became embedded in many cultures’ practices. Today tea leaf reading as a form of divination and prophecy-telling has associations with witchcraft, and one can’t help feeling a little witch-y while sipping a herbal brew on an Autumn’s eve.
