Please get pleasure from this sponsored content material offered by Swiss Cuban Cigars. They’ve used their experience to be a part of two very complicated worlds of taste.

Tea and cigars could also be certainly one of the most unusual pairings on the market. Tea is called certainly one of the oldest and most delicate drinks whereas the cigars have a tendency to be related to cramped poker golf equipment. Being a purely subjective expertise, cigar and tea mixtures have to be found over time and thru expertise. There are some pointers that may allow you to select the good mixture for a 5 o’clock delight. We listed some suggestions and tips to allow you to start:

Green, white or black?

These three important varieties of teas are principally produced from the similar plant, Camellia sinensis, however the entire manufacturing course of is totally different. The harvesting, drying and the general serving have a tendency to make an important distinction between all these tea, particularly regarding tea and cigar pairings.

White Teas

White teas are the youngest and the most delicate of all of them. This tea is produced from the youngest batches of leaves. The greatest match for this tea is a Claro cigar. These cigars are the lightest and most delicate as a result of the getting old course of could be very brief, which can be obvious in the mild shade of the wrapper. The important benefit on this pair is that each the cigar and the tea are very gentle and they’ll handle to complement the aromas.

Green Teas

Green tea might be simply mixed with many varieties of cigars. It has a moderately bitter taste that may go together with a really wide selection of cigars, from mild to full-bodied and from Claro to Maduro cigars. The vary of bitterness might be tackled by means of the infusion time thus making it very versatile when it comes to tea and cigar pairing. But general, a connoisseur cigar pairing for inexperienced tea is Montecristo No. 4. This specific medium to full-body cigar reveals vanilla flavors that may simply go together with a bitter inexperienced tea.

Black Teas

Black tea is the strongest and the one which has the most character. It has a really deep taste that may pose an issue when it comes to pairings. The greatest match for this burst of taste is a cigar that may battle this energy. A full-bodied cigar is an final match for the sort of tea and even a Maduro or a Colorado cigar can go very properly as a result of the bitterness of the cigar and the undertones can go completely with this specific sort of tea.

Flower Teas and Light-bodied Cigars

Flower teas have a tendency to have a really gentle aroma and a refined taste. An excellent match is a light-bodied cigar as a result of the aromas can go very properly collectively, even when the cigar has a selected aroma. For instance, a spicy cigar that’s light-bodied might be the good match for a mint tea as a result of the aromas will take your tasting expertise to the subsequent degree.

Spice Teas and Full-bodied Cigars

Spice teas have a tendency to be filled with character and so they show bursts of taste. From pepper, cinnamon or licorice teas, they require a companion that has the similar character. A full-bodied or medium-bodied cigar generally is a scrumptious match if it presents bursts of aroma like pepper, earth and even leather-based.

Iced or Hot?

Pairing is a fragile balancing act. One aroma could dominate the different, so temperature performs an vital function. Teas might be present in two main temperatures: very chilly or very popular. Iced teas might be mixed with all varieties of cigars so long as the tea has a robust aroma. Hot tea may also go very properly with many cigars however usually, it’s higher paired with a balanced cigar like a Hoyo de Monterrey.

Tea and cigar pairing is a real artwork that falls beneath the subjectivity of all of us and we hope that these factors will allow you to on this taste journey.
