"I don’t often come across such meaningful and unique event experiences as I would like to, so what Rui has done with Grass Tree People is a genuine joy. The tea ceremony she leads you through is an elegant way to connect with people that’s unlike anything else I’ve encountered. The tea she’s curated is not only exquisite in its quality, but the journey you take enjoying it opens up realms of ancient knowledge, endowing you with a sense of respect and awe, but also blissful delight with every luxurious sip. Rui is a true blue gem, her knowledge, passion and integrity is found steeped in every part of Grass Tree People, I could not recommend her and her products enough."
M. Kuen, Brand Director, NIKE
"The team and I found the tea experience a rewarding and great introduction to our days away from the office. Rui’s energy and presence was so comforting and relaxing, not to mention an educational session on tea. I truly have a newfound appreciation for what I put in my body and for the wonderful healing benefits the tea has to offer. We will work to practice this appreciation daily."
P. Armstrong, Writer & Digital Strategist, Forbes
"Rui’s expert knowledge of and passion for wild tea of her homeland Guizhou has always brought light and great energy to everyone at our events. Whether it is the health benefits of the teas, the etiquette and philosophy of the Far East, or the ancient art of tea-making itself - there is just always something extraordinary to learn. Highly recommended."
Gabriella Kaegler, Group Director of Strategy, Quintessentially
"The Tea Experience was, without a doubt, the perfect remedy for my team's away day. Following a fraught period in the office, it allowed us to reconnect, finding balance individually and as a team. Far more effective than the usual pub night out! Rui's calm and soothing manner taught us new things about tea (who knew they weren't from different colour trees!) whilst considering the ways we connect together, with our clients and the world around us."
T. Hogg, Managing Director / Co-Founder, Pieminister limited
"Many thanks to Rui for transporting us from our office in Bristol to the tranquil mountains of Guizhou with her stories and sublime wild teas. The ceremony was so relaxing, refreshing and informative that the team still talk about it often, we now rebrew all of our teas!"
“Treat the bud as the head, the leaves as the arms, and the stem the as the body. This is the only way we can celebrate and learn from the life of tea, because it has never stopped breathing since it was found and picked. Tea-making is simply to acknowledge and respect that as a fact, and to trust that nature does most of the job for us.
Practice patience and learn its language when it speaks to you. The rest is easy.”
— Master Lin on the preparation of living tea
