I ran a quick search and found next to nothing on the subject of pairing teas with cigars. Teas just dont get a lot of love around here. But they should. Im finding more and more that a good quality tea can really compliment & elevate the flavor and body of brighter profiled cigars, generally Dominicans & Habanos. And hot drinks are especially nice in the cold MN winters.
Ive recently paired and enjoyed-
Caribou Citron Green w/ Caldwell LLK The Heater
Caribou Hot Cinnamon Spice w/ OpusX Power Ranger
Dunn Bros Earl Grey w/ La Escepcion Selectos Finos
Some people take their teas very seriously, and in my search for some better teas Im hopeful that some of you are on Puff. Id love to hear your thoughts on the subject!
When looking at contrast, I like white tea with powerful cigars.
When looking at harmony, for instance, I tend to pair a lapsang souchong with cigars having a peat/smoke aroma.
However, my favorite is pu erh, I find it is the most neutral and delicate type of tea and adjusts to almost any cigar.
