Music for tea

by Teatime » Nov 17th, '05, 12:48

I have a CD called "The Art of Tea" by Jim Gibson. It contains beautiful piano music with a tea theme.

Does anyone know of any other CDs with a tea theme?

Well, in... TeaMuse, I think it is? There's a list of songs Adagio had had on a CD once.

I tend to listen to all kinds of music all the time, but I'm not sure of any others with a specific tea theme.

Bummer! It would have been nice to get a CD from Adagio!

Not to worry - you can totally download the songs from a place like iTunes and burn them to a CD!

I'll have to ask someone to do that for me as I don't have a cd burner.

Thanks for the suggestion!

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!

The "Wonder Boys" soundtrack is great too.

I've found the soundtrack to the new Narnia movie to be rather nice for drinking tea. But I also will listen to Cowboy Mouth or HIM while drinking my tea so there's no continuity here at all.

I've a liking for classical music, so the Adagio CD suits me very well :) That said, it also depends on what I'm drinking:

Jasmine: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon soundtrack
Black: my set of Yo Yo Ma CDs
Herbal: the softest music I can find

I like to listen to Bob Marley when I drink my tea. Just something about that island feel that makes tea taste good.

Maybe I'm cooky :wink: :roll: , but I love to listen to the Beatles, Led Zepplin, and some Monkees songs (like Daydream Believer - until I get too hyper due to various things and start air-guitaring or head-banging - tea sometimes makes me hyper AND blissful) when drinking tea. If not hyper, I like George Harrison or maybe David Beniot doing Charlie Brown music.

Classical is GREAT :D , as is Hawaiian slack key guitar 8) .

I listen to really trippy music like Massive Attack, or the Thievery Corporation when I'm drinking tea, sometimes acoustic music tho, like Iron & Wine, Emiliana Torrini, or City and Colour

Oh whoa I forgot there was already a thread for this when I saw the other one... but this one is technically different, because the original question was whether there are any tea-themed cds... Well I don't know of any whole cds, but there's a song by The Police called "Tea in the Sahara" which is really pretty. It's on the album Synchronicity. Enjoy!
