Hello “Cigar Community” and “Cigar Family!” Thank you for joining us and reading another great article here at Red Lips and Cigar Sticks™ we are happy to have you as one of our new, and/or faithful readers!
Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Tilithea Fax-Jones out of Maryland.
Tilithea has been an avid cigar smoker for three years. When she reflects over her cigar journey, she always gets tickled and laughs, because five years ago, she and her husband were smoking black and mild’s, like cigars. At the time, they both truly thought they were really smoking cigars and being true cigar smokers…LOL And, to their dismay, that was a Big Fat, “No”…lol. Therefore, Tilithea’s husband became inspired and was in search of a real cigar unbeknownst to her, he came home one day and informed her that he found some cigars that he thought she would love to try. And, this inspired them both to go to their local brick and mortar, to pick out some “real cigars” and it was history from this point on, the transition to smoking premium cigars became a lifestyle for them!
Not only did Tilithea fall in love with cigars, but she would even occasionally enjoy a nice pipe smoke, as well!
When Tilithea is enjoying her cigars, she likes to pair it with a nice red wine or a chocolatey wine depending on what she’s smoking at the time. Cigars and pairings are very personal and there’s no wrong or right way, but it’s about your way, and what works best for you, as a cigar enthusiast.
In the mornings, if Tilithea gets an opportunity to enjoy a cigar, then she’ll always have a cup of coffee with her cigar. However, if she’s mellowing out, then she switches it out and goes for the smoothness of pipe smoking, with herbal tea.
Over the course of Tilithea’s cigar journey, she’s had many cigars, and the very first cigar that she fell in love with was the “Isla del Sol” by Drew Estate. To her, it was like heaven, which this stick is always in rotation. Tilithea enjoys so many different cigars and brands from Drew Estate to Tabak. She enjoys flavored cigars, as well as cigars by My Father and some of her favorite hand-rolled specialty cigars are from “LaFaraona Cigars” out of Tampa, Florida. She absolutely loves their Solomon Maduro cigars. Another one of her favorite hand-rolled cigars is from “Dreams of Cuba,” which is also located in Florida. She likes this brand because they have an assortment of specialty blend cigars.
Overall, Tilithea likes to have full range in her cigar choices, because she does not want to limit herself to a few brands/blends, she wants to experience all that’s out there, even if it’s only once!!! Tilithea considers herself to be a cigar enthusiast, which she is still learning about cigars, as we all are because it’s a continuous cycle of learning. Tilithea likes cigars because they give her a sense of calmness and a relaxing feeling after a long day of work or just escaping any outside life that’s going on. What she’s learned is that enjoying the cigar lifestyle comes with inheriting many family members that have been an awesome addition to her life.
Also, in her spare time, she likes to create cigar picks for both the Sisters of the Leaf (SOTL) and the Brothers of the Leaf (BOTL).
One thing that is certain about Tilithea, she has impeccable style and she’s a major supporter of the “Cigar Community” and she shows love to everyone, which is why we have decided to feature her as our Red Lips Fashionista!
