The Irish are passionate about their tea but have you ever dedicated a whole rap to it?
The Rusangano Family are a three piece act from Limerick City, Ireland. They have just released their latest single Tea in a Pot. Tea drinking and rap are a strange mix but they’ve only gone and added scones too.
“‘Tea In A Pot’ is our ode to the good stuff. A beverage for everyone. A drink that acts like your calm friend in a storm.”
The released the song just before their performance at Electric Picnic.
“2017 has been good to us, and we wanted to get new music out there,” they explain. “Sometimes we can be a bit precious, but its always good to just drop random bangers here and there.”

Rusangano Family won the Choice Music Prize Irish Album of the Year 2016 with their record ‘Let The Dead Bury The Dead’.
“Winning the Choice Prize has been amazing and opened up a lot of doors to us. We’re always really keen to keep pushing forward, so it’s getting to that time when we need to go back to the studio for a couple of months and really get stuck in.
“We have a four-date Irish tour coming at the end of 2017, which we’ll announce fully soon, and then it’s time to duck down and sharpen the swords. We’re all pretty excited by any of the new material we’re working on, and this time, we’re looking out at the world to see who is listening.”
This isn’t the first time someone has decided to rap about their love for tea. A few years ago comedian Doc Brown rapped about the one thing that makes him angry. Taken from his appearance on Russell Howard’s Good News.
