Answers to what your future holds could be found in the bottom of your cup.  That's according to a divination practice referred to as Tasseography.   Tasseography is the practice of interpreting patterns in tea leaves or coffee grounds in a cup after drinking it.   (Tea is the most prominent source followed by coffee, and sometimes wine sediments.)

I know coffee and tea are used for many reasons, from providing relief for bug bites, to being an active ingredient in beauty regiments, but predicting your future?!- I had no idea!
