It took me some time to write this blog because in my mind it had to be perfect. Why? Well as you know, I love LOVE music. Allow me to reintroduce the other side of myself, Tamika J., singer/songwriter. You can find all my music here.
Alright alright enough with the commercials! Ok back to what I was saying!! Music is my passion, my love, and my therapy.
Initially, I was trying to figure out a cool way to introduce this blog. I wanted my passion for music and tea to burst out!
Sooooo... I stopped overthinking and I let go of that desire to be “perfect” and I decided to just flow through the pages. So I grabbed my composition book, my blue pen and I am sitting in my living room on a Friday night and I said to myself, “Tamika speak your mind!”
So, I don’t have a dope ass introduction. All I have is my pen, my thoughts and this Taomi Tea Justine’s Miracle Haitian Tea that is currently brewing on the stove.
Okay let’s get to it!
Picture it, a hot cup of tea, music in the background and you are relaxing and vibing. Oooh, that shit sounds so goood don’t it!!
Music is my form of heaven and therapy. Music brings out certain emotions out of anyone, beauty, pain, love, anger, joy and so much more. Music just makes everything right. My favorite thing to do while listening to music is to listen to the intent behind each lyric, instrumentation, harmony, EVERYTHING… I LOVE MUSIC! I am sure you can tell! 😩😂
Everything is sound! Even as I write, the tea kettle is whistling, singing her sweet melodies reminding me, it is Tea Time!!
Music is an experience and paired with tea makes a real treat, hence the name Taomi Tea N Treats!!
Each Taomi Tea blend gives me a certain taste of music and pairs well with certain genres of music.
Feels like a warm hug in a cup. The fresh aroma reminds me of home and this blend can be enjoyed anytime especially after a long day of work. Enjoy a cup of comfort, love, and home.
This Taomi Tea blend pairs well with some Haitian music 🇭🇹 I feel like I am right at home with my family and friends and we are dancing and singing to some classic Haitian music.

Be still and enjoy a peaceful, calming blend that promotes a healthy mind and restful night. The soothing taste relieves stress from the body and the relaxing aroma is perfect while meditating.
I like to pair this tea with Alternative Rock, Jazz and Neo Soul.

This wellness blend is for individuals who suffer from digestive issues such as Gastroesophageal reflux disease, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Bloating, Acid Indigestion, and other digestive ailments. This wellness blend will relieve all discomfort associated with digestive issues.
This tea blend is named after my mother, so of course it pairs well with one of her favorite songs! Check it out here. I remember waking up to this song. I would walk to the kitchen and see my mommy drinking her tea and praying while my niece is humming to the sound of this song. My mom was in her zone...she was in her VIBE! Sipping tea while enjoying the sound of music. This song holds a special place in my heart.
Also my mommy loves this song, be blessed and take a listen here .
Perfect balance of sweet and spicy to soothe the mind and body. The spicy notes from the ginger help with cold, flu, and allergy symptoms, and when paired with chamomile, together it will relieve tension and promote healing.
This Taomi Blend pairs well with any Sade song! I love LOVE Sade...let me bless ya and just leave this here.
The first signature blend created. The spicy notes from the ginger will awaken your senses and the fresh scent of lemongrass is a perfect combination to enjoy at any time.

Wake up to positive affirmations with a cup of “Positive Energy”, face your day feeling energized, motivated, and refreshed.
Positive Energy pairs well with Hip Hop and Soul music. Like Bob Marley says, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”- Bob Marley
Treat yourself to some Hip Hop here
Of course I had to add one of my favorite artists, Jill Scott, check her out here
Tea has a certain characteristic, vibe and flow. Think about it...the water is hot, you are pouring the hot water into your mug, even the sound of the pour is so relaxing and when you take your first sip, the taste is smooth and you instantly feel revived. Additionally, tea has its own personality. There are moments when tea can be bold, calm, cute, sexy and chilled!!
Music has the same effect. Something about hitting that play button and your favorite song(s) comes on and the melody makes you feel all kinds of emotions and you are in a vibe, that damn good vibe where no one can remove you from it.
Pairing tea with music is also mentally healing and man oh man we can use all the healing in this world! In my Taomi Tea pop ups, I purposely play music. The music is inviting and sets the mood for customers to relax and enjoy Taomi Tea.
Taomi Tea is blended with love and healing and pairing Taomi Tea with music is the perfect combination for self care, joy, real conversations and unity.
Here is a dope Taomi Tea N Treats playlist I created on Spotify, check it out here.
And as always peace, love and tea please 🍃☕️🍃
