Re: What music do you listen to (with tea)?

How about some dance to go with all the music?

Most of the time I listen to contemporary classical (like Glass or Adams-) when working and drinking tea.

I listen to music with lyrics when running or working out. I'm mostly programming or grading papers or doing math so I need stuff that's not too distracting ...

I'm inclined to whatever strikes my mood at the moment. (Same philosophy as my tea-drinking, as it were.) Usually it's something bright and peppy to get me through the day. Bowling For Soup? Katy Perry? Panic! At the Disco? Why the heck not.

By coincidence a friend of mine sent me this link to tea music:

http://www.welove-music.net/2013/03/tea ... n-tea.html

Not really my thing, but I guess it would be authentic.

My tastes run from indie rock to jazz to dub. My tea drinking does not influence my music choice at all. Last night I was listening to Death Grips while drinking some green tea- not a relaxing music by any means but I like it.

I always tend to put on some Miles or Coltrane, sometimes jazz24. It goes perfectly with puerh, gained the habbit through one of my teafriends.
If not jazz I put on some rock classics (David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Radiohead..),instrumental music like Toe (great Japanese band), soft electronics with some oriental sounds (Bonobo, Onra) or some good old Mozart.

love the jazz thing, but I listen to more modern guys like:
dave douglas, ambrose akinmusire, arve henriksen (check this guy out, seriously).
I also listen to alot of industrial stuff like skinny puppy, nurse with wound, etc....

Chopin's Nocturnes are pure delight, especially when brewing and drinking aged puerh. Hmmmm.

Actually I wouldn't be able to tell if there is any music playing specially after the 5th cup of gongfu young sheng.

Most likely Fado look for the link to their radio station.

For me, anything by Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen. His 2008 album "cartography" is stunning. https://youtu.be/oFXQqt84mFw

Interesting to hear a brass instrument sound quite a bit like a woodwinds.

I don't know anyone else that does this, but I love listening to some chill hip hop as I drink tea. It's that relaxing feeling.
