Today I just feel like screaming into a pillow…

I have no reason as to why, but all afternoon/evening I’ve felt like someone drove into me at full force – I just have a killer migraine, my body is sore and achy, I’m insanely tired, and to cap it all off I have two teeth that are really starting to be a problem. God do I hate my teeth; despite doing all the tooth care things I’m supposed to be doing I’ve just had sooo many reoccurring problems with tooth pain. I know it’s genetic; my entire family has this history of dental issues, especially on my dad’s side. We just have brittle teeth; and I’m sure all the tea drinking doesn’t help…

I know that dentist office’s are still open in Canada during the pandemic, but only for emergency treatment. What qualifies as emergency treatment though? Can I call and be like ‘Yo, I have a dull toothache that just wont quit but it’s the kind of pain that is dull and tireless so it eats you alive from the inside out slowly" or does it have to be more of a “IF YOU DON’T PULL THIS TOOTH OUT RIGHT FUCKING NOW I WILL DO IT MYSELF” kind of pain?? So much is unclear…

Anyway, I’m drinking this one tonight because I’m pulling out all the stops with comforting and soothing teas that make me feel at east/relaxed. That’s probably about the best thing that I can do for myself right now.

Ugh.

I’d call them and let them know what’s up and have your dentist decide.

VariaTEA

I’m sorry you’re dealing with that though

Definitely call. You know your own teeth, so if it’s an emergency to you that you want to go to the dentist, I think they will let you. Sometimes tooth pain might mean mouth infection, and after what happened with my dad’s stroke (and then hearing so many other similar stories) I definitely take teeth problems more seriously now.

I am so sorry! I will deffo say a prayer for you. Yes! Call the dentist! Hubby has the same problem. His mother’s teeth were fragile and so are his. Three days ago his molar broke into three pieces. We were worried they would pull it and he would need an implant but we were hoping for a crown. The dentist was about to FILL it.

I myself and a friend both had rough days just feeling the stress of the quarantine. That is probably affecting you, too, and making everything feel worse! Hope you feel better SOON!

Ros, I get it. Similar supposedly genetic shit teeth problems. 11 crowns later, I don’t screw around with any pain because it’s always been infection. Definitely call and ask what qualifies as emergency. Tell them everything you typed here. If you think you have an infected tooth, they need to know. That mental/physical state is tough. I hope you can get some treatment tomorrow. hugs

I don’t have toothaches, but my teeth just die. And then they decay. But no ache. I would call too and let your dentist decide. It is emergency in my opinion.

It’s pretty same here, but because not enough facemasks for people working in first line!

mrmopar

I would call for sure. I hope you can get some relief.

Roswell Strange

Thanks all – I will give them a call this afternoon and see what can be done.

Leafhopper

I echo what everyone else is saying and recommend that you call your dentist. We don’t know how long this lockdown will last, and constant tooth pain seems like it would qualify as an emergency. The worst they can do is say no. Sorry you’re having such a stressful week.

This sounds so miserable! I hope today is better and that you’re able to get treatment.

Bio

Hello! My name is Kelly, though many people in the tea community call me Ros or Roswell.

I am a twenty five year old proudly queer tea addict, blogger, and all around tea geek. I grew up in the Prairies, but a few years ago I relocated to Quebec to pursue a career with DAVIDsTEA in the tea industry! I’m still working on getting my French language skills down…

My first introduction to tea, in any form outside of instant and bottled iced tea, was about seven years ago when I happened to stumble upon DAVIDsTEA while looking for a birthday present for a friend! I tried their Birthday Cake rooibos blend, and I’ve been hooked on tea ever since! In those seven years; I was introduced to the online tea community, expanded my interest in flavoured teas to include a deep love and appreciation for straight teas and traditional brewing methods, got a tea themed tattoo, started reviewing teas, amassed a sizable tea and teaware collection, became a TAC certified Tea Sommelier, & even came full circle by beginning a career in the tea industry with DAVIDsTEA!

I consider myself a Jack of all Teas, and strive to have a knowledge and appreciation of all tea types, formats, and styles of drinking. I don’t like to feel boxed in to just being a “flavoured tea” or “straight tea” drinker – my expectations may vary depending on the type of tea or how it’s been processed/prepared but if it’s good tea, it’s good tea no matter how it’s been made!

You name it, I probably drink it- and I’ll absolutely try anything at least once.

My default method of preperation is hot, Western style, and straight – but I’m not opposed to additions if I’m in the right mood. If I ever add something to a tea or use a different method of preparation I will ALWAYS call it out in the tasting note though.

I like to listen to music when drinking tea, especially when I’m brewing a large pot at a time or steeping Gongfu. Often I curate very intentional tea and music pairings, and sometimes I share them here in my tasting reviews. Music is something that I find can deeply affect the experience of having tea.

Favourite flavour notes/ingredients: Pear, lychee, cranberry, cream, melon, pineapple, malt, roasty, petrichor, sweet potato, heady florals like rose, hazelnut or walnut, sesame, honey (in moderation), and very woody shou.

Least favourite flavour notes/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger, strongly spiced profiles (and most Chai in general), mushrooms, seaweed, chamomile, stevia, saltiness or anything that reminds me too much of meat that isn’t supposed to taste like meat…

Currently exploring/obsessed with: Sheng from Yiwu, Yancha (Qilan in particular), anything with a strong sweet potato note. Also, I need to try ALL the root beer teas! Searching for a really good caramel flavoured blend, ideally with a black tea base.

Please contact me at the instagram account listed below if you would like me to review your teas.

Currently I’m employed in the tea department of the DAVIDsTEA head office. While I’m still sharing my own personal thoughts on new & existing DAVIDsTEA blends, I am no longer numerically rating them due to the obvious conflict of interest. Any comments expressed are a reflection of my own thoughts and opinions, and do not reflect the thoughts and opinions of the company. Any DAVIDsTEA blends you currently see with a numeric score were reviewed prior to my being hired there and have not been adjusted since becoming a DAVIDsTEA employee.
