Sorry to have been a bit absent lately.
I have something strange going on with my nose. lol
Feels like someone punched me in it.
Started to hurt on the right side then went over the other side effecting my entire nose bridge.
Doctor gave me a script to which I had an allergic reaction to. Not a shock I am allergic to almost every pill one can imagine.
Anyway – between that and trying to get ready for our four day excursion which is like packing for a month long cruise with our health issues between my daughter and myself, I’m beat.
Alas the tea … Thank you ashmanra a nice black tea is what THIS doctor ordered! :)
Slightly malty, with a full mouthfeel which I love.
Roasty, a good coffee replacement especially if one were to make it with extra leaf!
Mmmmm a nice one!

Hesper June

I am sorry about you nose! That sounds painful,glad you are getting better.
Hope the trip is fun.
Don’t forget to pack the tea!:-)

ashmanra

Oh no! Any idea what went wrong? Selma sort of cartilage infection? Or sinus?

Thank you Hesper June, Amy oh, and ashmanra.
The tea was one of the first things I packed up – then repacked – then switched to a larger bag LOL
Well the doctor didn’t “officially” diagnose me. Sort of said it could be this or could be that. But said the antibiotic would fix either thing. We thought it could be cellulitis since I have other markings for it, or could be sinus related perhaps. I didn’t think of a cartilage infection! Doctor didn’t mention that one. I should google this! I don’t like going to doctors but sometimes you just have to. They never seem to tell you what you have. They just toss a prescription at you and cross their fingers. I do believe in this case though I did need the script. Now waiting for a new one since I had an allergic reaction to the original one.

My daughter got infected cartilage when she had her tragus (hang-y little flap by ear hole) pierced and it took a long time to heal. If you haven’t had any cartilage pierced, I suppose it is unlikely to be that. :)

Azzrian

I have a pierced brow but have had it for years now. Could it happen long after it is done?

ashmanra

I suppose it could but would be likely and you would feel it near the piercing itself I think,, and I don’t think it would travel that far to other cartilage. The trouble with cartilage infections is the lack of blood vessels in the area, so once infected it is hard to get medicine moving around in there except what you can do topically.

Hope you are all better soon!

Azzrian

Thank you so much. I am better since taking the one pill – still waiting to hear on the other script though. Plus taking aleive for swelling, and some benedryl – already helping a TON!

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
