When I think about it: tea and cigars might be a more natural fit than cigars and whisky. My main tea consumption exists of Taiwanese gao shan... a flowery,light R&Y might be an option.
My knowledge of cigars is quite limited, anybody who could help me pairing some of my cigars (only have about 6-7 in my humidor, quite an expensive hobby for a student)?

During winter, I mostly drink Hung Shui but I only smoke in Spring/Summer So now my tea diet will mainly consist of Shan Lin Shi, Alishan and Dong Ding tea. I did buy some Yancha, roasted TGY and some sheng to experiment with
I've only bought Cubans so far and Ethan just told me that they might be too heavy for such delicate teas. Also that Cuban take some time to become a proper smoke.

Also like the Partagas E2 but they can be quite strong for me since I'm not used to the nicotine. I'm not experienced enough to really favor one cigar above the other, still browsing around. A nice subsitute for Cubans might be nice, they seem to be way overpriced compared to cigars from other countries.
