You may know Rui as a Tea Expert sharing unique stories and wild tea from her beautiful home, Guizhou, China. What you might not know is that she used to be one of the highest-earning fashion models in Asia, the face of Chanel, Miss Universe China, and served in the Navy before studying her MA at Central St. Martins in London and founding Grass People Tree.
Exposed to the adult world as a teen, Rui left China to travel the world but found herself becoming wrapped in the bubble of materialism and increasingly disconnected from her roots. Seeking to reconnect with herself, she began a new journey, finding meaning and making a connection with others along the way...
Rui would like to share with you her struggle, her joy, and her learnings through a casual get-together of tea and tea based drinks, to warm up your heart and soul.
Held at Buzzbar HQ in Shoreditch, spaces are limited and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served, basis.
Welcome Tea of Union & Togetherness. Meet and Greet
