TOGETHER FOREVER TEA: Marketing whiz Lara Thompson is living a fast-paced life in the big city when she’s summoned to the sleepy town of Kissing Falls to settle the affairs of her late Aunt Vivienne who owned a tea shop. Lara originally plans to sell the shop quickly, but switches course to fulfill her aunt’s last wish – to have one of her teas awarded by the prestigious International Council of Tea Sommeliers. With the help of handsome local flower expert Matt, Lara sets out to recreate a long lost “love potion” tea. One problem – the tea’s secret ingredient is the extinct Kissing Falls rose. As Lara and Matt work together, she finds herself not only falling for Matt but for the town itself.
TOGETHER FOREVER TEA is produced in association with Citytv, a Rogers Sports & Media channel, to air as part of Citytv’s fan-favourite Fall in Love Fridays lineup. Kaleigh Kavanagh, Tina McLaren and Bridget Bourke will produce the film; Executive Producers are Philly de Lacey, Jean Bureau and Ian Whitehead.
