Well, here's a thread about it. It was kinda short, but it's a start: Music for tea. Personally, I've got a Hawaiian slack key guitar CD that's perfect and another CD that's Gerald Jay Markoe's Zen Meditations. It all depends on your tastes.

I can suggest a few music labels to try (my personal favorite tea-listening artists in parentheses)... many of these have songs/albums available for download from their websites:

n5md (SubtractiveLAD, Tim Koch, Loess): http://www.n5md.com/

M3rck (MD, Secede, Mr. Projectile): http://www.merckrecords.com/

City Centre Offices (Arovane, Ulrich Schnauss, Yasume): http://www.city-centre-offices.de/cco/

Morr Music (ISAN, B. Fleischmann, múm, Phonem): http://www.morrmusic.com/

Toytronic (Gimmik, Abfahrt Hinwil): http://www.toytronic.com/

... and, of course, the big one:

Warp Records (Autechre, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Red Snapper, Plaid, Boards of Canada): http://www.warprecords.com/



...yeah... you've basically asked everyone here what their favorite music was, sorry.. :-P

I find a nice cup of chamomile goes quite well with any number of Slayer records.

I like listening to electronica dance music while drinking tea. Or some symphonic songs.

Ooh, good question... I generally like to listen to Sting's album Ten Summoner's Tales while relaxing with tea, because it's very relaxing and very imaginative. Also a good choice (and a bit longer) is the soundtrack to The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Anything by Blackmore's Night works well too. As you can tell, I like to stimulate my imagination while I relax. :D

I guess it all depends on what music you like and what tea you like. I mean, I like a happening tea/tisane blend and jazz...but green tea and Enya could be your thing....or Peppermint tea and Nora Jones...

But if it were me, I'll take the chill jazz and a jazzy brew

I don't have specific music for tea - I drink tea (either hot or iced) pretty much all day. I tend to match my music more to the weather.
