In the coming weeks, many of us will be spending more time at home. Though this unusual situation seems a challenge at first, it can be also be seen as an opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones. Why not take this time to recenter, take care of ourselves and enjoy some extra time doing things you love?

Our team have been sending in suggestions to share with you of favourite books, tv-series or movies they have enjoyed with their favourite teas.

Movies and TV series

François suggests:

  • "C'est comme ça que je t'aime" by François Létourneau on Tou.tv, along with a Dejiang Hong Cha. For what it's worth, we believe that just series is worth the Tou.tv monthly membership alone.
  • "Léo" from Fabien Cloutier on Illico, paired with a Long Jing Zhejiang

Marie suggests:

  • Re-watch "Le cœur a ses raisons" in its entirety, along with a Xiao Zhong

Véronique suggests:
