MOVIE REVIEW

Movie: Together Forever Tea

Network: BYUtv

Original Air Date: August 6, 2021 at 1pm/12c.

Starring: Kim Crossman and Jay Ryan



Storyline: 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.


Review:

 "Together Forever Tea - This movie is sweet, but a little slow moving, at times. I liked the present story with the leads gradually falling in love and working together on a special tea, but I thought the love story that was never fulfilled from the past was rather sad. Overall, the movie is a nice rom-com and family friendly." ~Net

 "The title of the movie is so weird that I wondered what we were letting ourselves in for but this is another from a company relatively new to us which has come through with a lovely and charming family friendly movie. The pairing of Kim Crossman and Jay Ryan - neither of whom I had heard of before - was just perfect and although the plot moved at a gentle pace they lit up the screen to such an extent that you were totally captivated by them. I thought they were both excellent in their roles. Some aspects of the plot were staple fare but trying to recreate a special tea brew made it that bit different. The one downside was the sub-plot of the aunt having had a disastrous love affair in her youth which was responsible for them having to produce the new blend to try and win an award which had been denied her. Although this was a necessary element in the overall context of the plot I felt it was a bit twee and overblown in the second half of the movie and it slightly dampened my enthusiasm. Kim's pushy work partner added a bit of spice to the proceedings. But the ending was just lovely and I was left with that feel good factor. If anyone at Hallmark's casting Department happens to be reading this go out and grab Jay Ryan quickly - he's 30 years old and would make a perfect Hallmark hero!" - Florence

  1. BYUtv is a great find, Net.

    It looks like they have some tie to Incendo Productions because they seem to air all their movies and they've generally been pretty good.

    I'm not sure what to expect from this one as sometimes the synopsis can be misleading but it does seem a bit dry with no friction between the leads.

    There are acouple of other movies coming from them which I like the look of.

    The Secret Sauce starring Tori Anderson and Corey Sevier is one and looking particularly intriguing Farmer Seeking Love with Jesse Hutch centred around a dating reality TV show in which his sister submits his name without nhis knowledge! - Florence

    1. Florence, Glad you've been enjoying these movies on BYU. I'm also glad to see BYU has this connection with Incendo Productions... I'm hoping this means we'll see even more new Christmas movies on there this year!

      By the way, I've also got my eye on those titles you mentioned - The "Secret Sauce" and "Farmer Seeking Love!" They both look appealing. It's really great to have this alternative.

      Thank you for sharing! :)

  2. Hi Net,
    Can you watch these movies on the BYUtv app? This sounds like a great network, but I don't get it on my TV. Hoping you might know. Thanks for all you do

    1. Melissa, Yes! BYU offers an app and various streaming sources to watch their movies and shows. You can visit their app page here:

      Hope this is helpful to you! I've watched free through my Roku and it works perfectly - just like watching TV.

    1. Namegirl, Same here! I looked at their IMDB pages and they've both been in lots of stuff, but they are new-to-me, too! They look like a cute match, I think. All the pics really have me intrigued.

    1. Chris, "Together Forever Tea" was shot on location in New Zealand. Most of the actors are also from there.

  6. Question: recently you showed a movie on BYU that was in Ireland. I wanted to watch it, but have lost the title. Can you remember which one that might have been? I'm thinking it was just in July. Thanks ever so much.

    1. Hello there! I'm trying to think of which movie that might've been. It seems many of these are filmed in New Zealand or Canada.

      Here's a list of all the ones from this year on BYU:

      A Love Yarn

      One of a Kind Love

      Seasoned with Love

      You May Kiss the Bridesmaid

      As Gouda As It Gets

      Olympians at Heart

      Together Forever Tea

      Hopefully, this list will help. If there is something else you can remember about it - I would be happy to help you figure it out.
