Taken from an online quote reference ""Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar" is attributed to Sigmund Freud. But there is no evidence that he actually said it. It means that sometimes a cigar is what it is and not a phallic symbol."

Just to make it clear, I have a lot of respect for your tea knowledge. You can teach me a lot. Parallel ground is a concept just like a cigar and a woman. We have our interpretations of what they are but they are all learned, taught to us by others and from books. Of course a cigar is not just another cigar and I didn't say that. I said a cigar is just a cigar. What ever we think it may be or how we value it doesn't change this. The same with tea. We can attribute all kinds of magical things about it but after all is said and done, it is just tea. There is no problem here.
