A nice cup of tea provides not only a refreshing “pick-me-up”, but it can also unlock all sorts of events such as weddings, births and friendships along with bad or good luck.  Here is some everyday trivia associated with tea brewing, pouring and drinking!


  • Loose leaf tea accidentally dropped in the house will bring good luck
  • To spill a little tea while making it is lucky
  • Forgetting to put the tea into the pot before pouring on the boiling water is very bad
  • To brew tea stronger than usual indicates you will make a new friend
  • Weakly made tea may mean the loss of a friendship or someone close to you
  • Should the lid be accidentally left off the teapot, you may expect a stranger bringing bad news
  • Stirring tea in the teapot counter clockwise will cause you to quarrel with a friend
  • Tea spilling from the spout of the teapot while being carried indicates a secret will be revealed.
  • A man and a woman, who take turns in pouring, will have a child born to them.
  • A female visitor must not pour tea from another woman's teapot in her house or one of them will have a baby within the year or both women will encounter bad fortune!
  • To put milk in your tea before sugar is to cross the path of love, perhaps never to marry
  • Bubbles stuck to the side of the cup indicate romance is in the air and each bubble represents a kiss
  • Floating bubbles that can be transferred to the mouth without touching the sides of the cup or spoon, indicate a letter is on its way
  • Bubbles floating in the middle indicate you will be rich and the more bubbles, the greater the money
  • Small pieces of tea that float on the top of the cup mean a visit from strangers or the imminent arrival of a lover!
  • The more tea leaves in your teacup, the fuller your life
  • Undissolved sugar in the bottom of your teacup means that there is someone sweet on you.
  • If the tag falls off the teabag while it's in your cup, you will lose something within a week.
  • Two teaspoons, accidentally placed together on the same saucer,  points to a wedding or the person whose saucer it is will marry twice but also may mean a pregnancy or the person whose saucer it is will have twins
  • Dropping a teaspoon on the floor means that a child will visit the house





“Above all, love each other deeply,
because love covers over a multitude of sins. 

Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.”

I Peter 4:8-9
