Tea leaves, is this okay?

Because I cant find actual tea leaves to do tea leaf readings can I open up a tea bag and use those leaves ( btw I have herbal and normal tea so i'm not sure if that would make a difference)

Also is there a correct way to read tea leaves or do you drink the tea/or person you doing reading for and leave the leaves at the bottom and look for symbols. Thank you :)

Tea bags usually contain the dust from when the leaves are "blended".
And telling fortunes by reading tea leaves is a bit of harmless nonsense, starting from when tea was enormously expensive!
There are even books on the subject! Published to make money for the authors!

Reading tea leaves is a form of divination. You would have to use actual tea leaves in order to actually get some symbols. As with all divination all that matters is you, it is you and your brain who is going to make symbols out of the tea leaves, not the tea leaves themselves. Our brains are hardwired to organise and interpret a chaotic mess into patterns and symbols we understand.

It doesn't mater if you use tea leaves, Chicken intestines or clouds. It is all about bypassing the conscious mind and accessing the unconscious mind which communicates in symbols.

Whilst reading tea leaves may have been created as a gimmick, I would argue it would work as good as (or not at all) as other methods because it would work in the same way.

The way I read leaves you swirl the tiny bit of tea left in the cup three times clockwise with your left hand or the person who your reading needs to do that, flip the cup over on a napkin or towel to let the water fall out. Then read them. You sound be able to get loose tea at health food stores or online. I got my steel tea dunker thing at Target for a dollar.
