Drag Finder Window's Proxy Icon to add tab System 10.9
A new tab can be added to a Finder window that already has tabs by dragging a folder's proxy icon to the plus sign that appears in the tabbed window.

You probably know you can drag the proxy icon of a Mavericks Finder window to another Finder window's tab to move or copy it to the tab's folder. You can add the folder as a tab to a Finder window that already has tabs if you drag its proxy icon to the plus (+) icon next to the right-most tab of the tabbed window.

Without trying to be too peevish, i just want to point out that practically any documentation you find about Finder tabs in Mavericks will tell you to command-double-click or command-ctrl-O with a folder selected to add it as a tab in the window you're viewing. I challenge you to find any mention about dragging the proxy icon of a window you're viewing onto the plus (+) sign in another tabbed window anywhere other than here or in the tweet I posted about submitting the hint here. Apologies, and now I'm climbing back down from my high horse.
