ADVENT DAY 22 (kind of diary entry only)

If I could, I will drink this tea. But I can’t. Hopefully tomorrow.

No caffeine, no hot drinks… because I had so strong nosebleed yesterday and today morning, I have decided to visit ENT specialist. She decided to “fix it” with some kind of device and yes, since then no nosebleeds. But boy that was hurting so much! And it was bleeding afterwards. I have a swab in nose all day… soon I will took it out. And then I have here a salve which should help with veins recovery and overall calming it down.

I hope it won’t be necessary anytime soon. Because it was nasty!


That sounds like a not-so-great experience. I hope you feel better soon!


That sounds terrible! Hope your nosebleeds don’t return.


I hope you’re on the mend now and soon able to enjoy all the teas!

Evol Ving Ness

Aww, sorry that you are suffering, Martin.


Hope things are better quickly!


That sounds terribly uncomfortable! Hope you are feeling better now!

Martin Bednář

Thank you everyone. Yesterday, all day my nose was hurting and having swab in all day wasn’t pleasant. Since then one little nosebleed from second hole, but I was able to stop it quickly. Since then no nosebleeds and… I can enjoy hot drinks again.

The salve is indeed helping and although it is not very pleasant as it is wax base and I have to let it melt; it helps and that matters.

Evol Ving Ness

Hurray! And the best part, of course, is that you are on the mend and are able to go back to drinking tea!

Martin Bednář

I am on the mend? Nope, pre-holidays cleaning up all day. Setting up the tree. Preparation for tomorrow fancy dinner. So not being on the mend. But yes, I am trying to relax a bit more than usual.


Hope you are feeling better soon!

Adventaggedon Day 17: Tea 4/8

Second time around and I’m loving this one just as much as the first time! I did have it naked this time around which allowed for a more brisk and intense kind of cup, but I paired with a nice buttery almond scone topped with a fig infused cream cheese and then a handful of actual halved figs which was delicious as well and a really great pairing/compliment to the more baked bread/grain and malty notes of the black tea and it drew out a few of the raisin-like fruity undertones that were hiding in between that bold tannic body.


Ooh…forget the tea, I want your breakfast!
