Music and Tea- A Serendipity in Daily Life

Music and Tea- A Serendipity in Daily Life

The end of yet another year is approaching. Sounds scary, doesn’t it? The looming year-end, which does bring joy but at the same time, a little bit of fear. As working professionals, the year-end means meeting targets and wrapping up projects, so that you can begin the New Year with a fresh and clean slate. In an effort to finish these tasks on time, all the while taking care of our health, we often find ourselves turning to the simplest of delights in life. Delights like music and tea.

Music and Tea share an essential characteristic. Neither of them is serious, yet both should be approached with honesty and consideration. Exactly like how we should treat our lives, with sincerity and thoughtfulness. Nobody in their sound mind would question the significance of music and tea in a well-lived life, for they are requisite parts. The unique thing about music and tea is that every experience is unlike the other. Every time we listen to a particular song play, our emotions react differently. Similarly, making and drinking tea every time is a unique experience. No brew is like the other.

It is true that an air of tranquility surrounds tea, which makes us believe that tea is best drunk on a rainy day with slow mellow music. However, there is no doubt that when required, your cup of tea will give you just the right push towards your professional and social life. Unlike coffee, tea will release caffeine slowly into your system, which will keep you energised longer and won’t give you a caffeine drop. Plus, the antioxidants in tea keep you energised for long and leave you feeling refreshed always.

Similarly, music can affect your mood in various ways. When we listen to a particular rhythm, our heart begins to harmonize with it. When we listen to cheerful music, our brains usually produce hormones like serotonin and dopamine, which make us feel happy. Listening to relaxing, soothing music or hard, loud and angry music can also cause different emotions to stir. Music can make you feel joyful, sad, angry, hyped up, relaxed etc. and sometimes all at the same time!

Just like how your phone houses music for every mood, there is a tea for every time of the day, for every mood. The ChaiSpa range of wellness green tea paired with some of the most fabulous music of our time gives us just the right amount of boost to jump out of our beds, stretch a bit and conquer the day ahead.

Music and Tea- Champions of a perfect day

1. Music and Tea- The 6 A.M. Wakeup Call

Pair that with the right kind of music for your mood, and you are ready to kick off your day with a fresh frame of mind. ChaiSpa’s Ananda is a brilliant infusion of rose, passion flower and ashwagandha with green tea.

5. Music and Tea- The After 10 P.M. ‘Slumberland’ Vibes

Your day has finally come to an end. You’ve finished your entire day’s chores and socialising. It’s time to slip into some comfortable pyjamas and snuggle into your blanket. But before you sleep, it’s best to make yourself a steaming cup of green tea. Just one last chore before you can drift into dreamland. Nidra by ChaiSpa is a beautiful mix of green tea with lavender, chamomile and passion flower. Gathered and blended with love and care, this tea will help you sleep peacefully, without a worry of what has or might happen. As you take this moment to drink your final cup of the day, you finally have some time for yourself. You can use this time to retrospect your entire day, maybe even fiddle with ideas for the next day. Or you could just read a few pages of a book. How you spend those few moments is entirely up to you. It’s best, however, not to go on an online spiral of vines and cat videos, otherwise, you might never stop. Music and tea in such moments will elevate your calm, maybe even sway your emotions in the right direction as you hit the hay.

Music and Tea- A Serendipity in Daily Life

A Lifestyle that is Driven by Music and Tea

Having a life driven by your love for music and tea may seem bizarre to some, but it is an idea that works for a lot of us. We are always on the lookout for something modish, yet at the same time healthy.

The nudge and pull of the rhythm of music and the tantalising taste of tea inspire a different sense of motivation into us, which help us get out of bed every day, go to work, finish our work and socialise with people. Finally, the gentle arms of music and tea guide us to our comfortable beds and soothe our minds with a hum as we drift off into our utopia. Nothing sets the atmosphere and tone like music. It bypasses conscious thought and resonates with our primal instincts. Similarly, the aroma of a good cup of tea sets a mellow yet energising aura around us.

That is why pairing music and tea which is inspired by our wellness concerns is what millennials need today. Wellness and self-care aren’t a selfish thought, they are a fundamental need.

Here’s the entire playlist for you, so that you don’t have to go searching around the web for it. Just grab your cup, sit back and relax.
