I've never listened to that much Iron & Wine, but it's not bad stuff. I've never heard of Joe Hisaishi but I absolutely loved that video and I want to find more by him!

Ibiza trance is always good (Humate - Love Simulation).

But I really just leave on whatever is playing.

Depends. Since I drink tea while working, I usually have some calm lounge-style music in the background. Something like this: http://magnatune.com/artists/general_fuzz

And sometimes shakuhachi stuff.

There is a link up there about green tea and music too :)


As for mee....Iron and Wine is pretty awesome. Lately I've been in the mood for French pop (Francoise Hardy, Carla Bruni), Canadian indie (broken social scene, arcade fire, stars, feist, do say make think, kevin drew, etc), and the smiths. cos the smiths own. OH, and movie soundtracks too as of late- The Darjeeling Limited, atonement, juno, there will be blood, ...

Honestly, I never listen to music while drinking tea. I find it more peaceful just to have nice peace and quiet. Usually I am doing some sort of school work, etc.

Any music that accompanies a erhu! Or German lieder will do.

Mark Knopfler with anything makes me happy. :D In fact, when I saw Mark Knopfler at Red Rocks three summers ago (I have tickets for this June as well!), he actually took a tea break during his set. Seriously. He sent his union players off stage, pulled up an amplifier and had one of the roadies bring out a cup of tea...tea bag, but still. White china with saucer. It made me love him more! 8)
