Uncover hidden tea leaf meanings

Ink is a colored fluid which is used for drawing, printing, writing or duplicating.

As a symbol, ink represents communication and permanence. When you write something using ink, it is very hard to erase it from the paper or wherever you have used it; be it on a piece of furniture or clothes. So if you see the ink during your tea cup reading, it means that whatever you are doing in life is what you have worked on for a long time, and there is no turning back.

You are communicating to everyone around you and that is the way you want your life to move, and nothing is going to change you or talk you out of it.

Detailed meaning of the ink tea leaf symbol

Top of teacup: if you see the ink at the top of the teacup, it means that whatever you have decided to do in your life is final, and there is nobody who can talk you out of it. What you can just be advised is to re-check your goals to make sure that you are on the right track. Life is all about making decisions.

Middle of cup: ink in the middle of the teacup is an indication that, you are about to make a decision which might cause permanent damage or benefit you and those around you. So this means that, before making that decision, evaluate the pros and cons and make sure that the pros surpass the cons. It is an irreversible change, that is why it is important that you take your time before communicating your change to those around you. Never try to do things which are permanently going to hurt you or those around you.

Bottom of teacup: ink at the bottom of the teacup denotes that, you don’t really have principles in life and that is why your life is what it is! People are making decisions for you, and you are following these without having to communicate your views to them. Remember that you are a unique individual. You're not like everyone else, and you don't have to do things to please others; do what you think is right in your perspective even if others won't like it. Communication is an important tool in life, utilize it.

Scattered in the cup: scattered ink in your teacup is an indication that, you are always fifty-fifty when it comes to making decisions in your life; at times you make decisions which you stick by, and at times you are swayed by what others are doing; you need to have a stand and stick by it in order to have order in your life. Following people blindly might lead you into a ditch which will be hard to get out of difficult situations.


Principles are the foundation of life and if you have them, then adhere to them because that is what will define you. But you have to make sure that, they are principles which don’t harm those are you or hinder them in any way to communicate with you.
