4 Playlists to Drink Tea To!

Hello hello!

Last month, I had become unfortunate enough to contract Covid 19. It resulted in an ER visit with contemplation of putting me on life support, ninety straight hours of Covid, the near-collapse of both lungs, and inevitably, loss of smell and taste. Although I’ve been ‘cleared’ from the health department, as of now, I have yet to regain my ability to taste. As a result, I’m unable to properly review tea at the moment.

However, although I’m able to continue drinking tea, I’ve been more focused on meditation and connecting tea time with music. Since vibin’ to music while drinking tea has become a favorite past-time of mine, I decided to create a few playlists — curated to help improve your next tea session!

Guideline:

The following are 4 different playlists. I put them in specific order, so I HIGHLY recommend you listen to them in order and NOT on shuffle.

Each playlist should last the duration of 1 gong-fu session.

With each list, a tea pairing will be accompanied, or a recommendation of which tea to drink while listening to each playlist.

Playlists:

Playlist: Singer/Songwriter

Duration: 47 Minutes

Description: This playlist spans across R&B, alternative pop, and classical as we visit different artist’s ability to vocally put us in a trance with beautiful lyrics and melodies.
