Tea and coffee are connected by the caffeine protecting their plants. In their spirit, the cultures dancing around them, in their way of comforting the drinker, even with their spoons, they differ from each other. Where coffee grows, people dance lively and walk decisively. Where tea grows, there is transcendental tranquility, even in the walking pace, and corporeal sway.
When a cigar calls for a pairing, there will likely be good reason for the decision taken.
