Ming Tea is a band formed and consisting of:

They are best known for their song "BBC", which appeared after the ending credits of the movie Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, as well as the song "Daddy Wasn't There", which Myers' character Austin Powers sings in Austin Powers in Goldmember. Both songs appear in their respective movie soundtracks.

The band has appeared in character for several live gigs, including at the Viper Room.

After their collaboration in Ming Tea, Sweet and Hoffs continued to work together, recording two albums. Under the Covers, Vol. 1 and Under the Covers, Vol. 2 consists of some of the duos' favorite classic rock songs. In this format they have been known by the pseudonyms Sid and Suzie.

In one reply to a fan's question about Ming Tea in The Bangles Fan Mail page, Susanna Hoffs states that "We got the name Ming Tea from a very obscure 1960's Italian movie starring Ursula Andress."[1] The film in question is The 10th Victim, which features the fictional Ming Tea Company.
