4. Quality Time

mothers-day-terranea-life5As a tribute to the famous vacation destination on the East Coast of the United States, the Cape Cod watch is an invitation to take to the high seas. Available in both non-set and gem-set versions, its attachments reinterpret the links that are characteristic of the Chaîne d’Ancre bracelet. The Tonneau model is created using a new Hermès-exclusive silver alloy, which preserves the characteristic glow of this precious metal over the years. Both the non-set and gem-set models tie at the wrist with their interchangeable straps, allowing for endless possibilities for wear.

5. Tea Time

The modern tea world recognizes six categories of tea: green, yellow, white, oolong, black and dark/pu’er. The astounding variety of teas available today, and the vast geography where tea is grown, is all the more amazing given tea’s early roots. Anthropological research indicates that tea was originally wild-harvested and consumed as a bitter vegetable that was cooked into nourishing soups as a folk medicine prepared as a vitality tonic, dating back some four or five thousand years.

Activate your senses as you leaf through your tea journey with different ingredients and flavor profiles. It is the mission of Rishi Tea to connect you to the gardens and mountains where they source organic teas and botanicals. They are devoted to continual research and development alongside artisan farmers and specialist producers.
