An informative, relaxed and restorative journey through an ancient tradition of tea-drinking.

Unlike industrialised tea which priositises volume and profit, Living Tea is an ancient tea-making philosophy that cherishes the living quality of wild tea plants by following nature's pace throughout the entire process.

In today's world, we no longer approach tea this way. We'd love to invite you to the immersive experience of Living Tea and celebrate the ancestral insights of holistic health, culture diversity and environmental harmony.

Your perception of tea will be transformed completely.

If you'd like us to host a virtual tea experience for your family, friends, colleagues, business or for a special occasion,  please get in touch.

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 enough.”

“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.”
