Tinie Tempah - Tinie Tempah drinks mint tea

Tinie Tempah always sips on mint tea backstage before his concerts.

The 'Pass Out' rapper admits his tour rider isn't very rock 'n' roll and although he has a small amount of alcohol in his dressing room, his favourite thing to indulge in before a gig is home-brewed, fresh mint tea.

Quizzed about his concert must-haves, he said: ''When I first started out, it was an abundance of sweets, but now it's very practical things. I like a good mint so, I've got fresh mint leaves to make my own tea, which is cool I have popcorn, I love sweet and salted.

''I have scented candles because it gets a bit sweaty in there with all the lads coming off the stage. A nice bottle of champagne to pop if the show goes great, too, and we have a shot of Jack Daniel's or some vodka before the show.''

The stylish star was recently spotted with One Direction singer Harry Styles at London Fashion Week and says he always has time to catch up with the group.

Tinie told heat magazine: ''It's always good to see Harry. From 'The X Factor' to where 1D have come now, it's a blessing. I'm always very happy for them. I brought them out on my show once and I have a lot of time for Harry and vice versa. We were just ogling models, as you would.''
