My favorite album of all-time to listen to while sipping tea is Simon & Garfunkel's, "Bridge Over Troubled Water."
Also, Bob Dylan's, "Blood on the Tracks," and The Who's, "Who's Next." For the mix-tape feel, the "Garden State" and "Almost Famous" soundtracks work well.
I also enjoy Leonard Cohen, Badly Drawn Boy, Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits, Ray Lamontagne, John Cale and John Lennon while tipping back the teacup.
Of course, the Grateful Dead and the Dead are great for that special kind of "sunshine daydream" tea.
If I have company, I might opt for Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Medeski Martin Wood, or the Clumsy Lovers.
Just take a cue from Teany and don't play any Moby!
Universally that person's acumen is esteemed very little perceptive concerning whatsoever matters are being held as most profitably by mortals with sapience endowed to be studied who is ignorant of that which the most in doctrine erudite and certainly by reason of that in them high mind's ornament deserving of veneration constantly maintain when by general consent they affirm that other circumstances being equal by no exterior splendour is the prosperity of a nation more efficaciously asserted than by the measure of how far forward may have progressed the tribute of its solicitude for that proliferent continuance which of evils the original if it be absent when fortunately present constitutes the certain sign of omnipotent nature's incorrupted benefaction.
