The card is lovely! 
I'm a real "theeleut" (Dutch for someone who drinks a lot of tea) and I love to discover many types of tea. But I don't believe I can discover my fortune at the bottom of my tea cup, although it sounds very interesting. (^_^)

But I read "The Joy Luck Club" a long time ago and I always remember the moment where the traditional Chinese mother scolds her adult daughter for flushing the last sip of her tea into the sink. According to her you shouldn't do that because it meant you're throwing your luck away. I'm not really superstitious but since reading that wonderful book I never throw my tea away, even when it's become cold or bitter. 
(did I mention that I'm not really superstitious?) Sweating a little...

Nope I also am not superstitious! But I love all sorts of folklore and magic and myth and holidays traditions 
TEA YESSSSS
I drink tea, every evening. I keep a whole big jar filled with bags of teas. A friend recently gave me a small case of house tea from the restaurant of a 4 star hotel in Beijing.

My, 4 star house tea sounds very promising. Fancy Dance PLZ 
I've also received some tea caddies full of tealeaves from China. I have no idea what kind of tea it all is (I'm still trying to find out) but it sure tastes delicious!
For me personally, tea is like a hug in a cup. Warming Up
