Hellooo. As promised I've come back with a mix of stuff for your listening pleasure. These mixthings I'm doing are named after some teas I take great pleasure in drinking. Sometimes I'll be drinking the particular tea whilst listening to the tracks I've used to dedicate to it. Tea, wooo... zoop zoop!!!
Anyway, this first one is relatively poppy and there are a few kicks in there (you'll here these problems throughout this one and next ones), a bit like the effect of Lapsang Souchong when you first try it. It's this Chinese black tea which is dried by being smoked through pinewood fires, and this gives it its distinctive smoky aroma and taste. It's the Marmite of teas I reckon. Give it a try as well as this mixthing :). This is my first run, next one is going to be "weirder and wonderful" much better, then the next one and the next and the next... Send me your thoughts.
Big love. x
