I am a big believer of the saying, "When the student is ready, the teacher appears."
Throughout my entire life I have had this feeling, or calling, to cultivate myself towards a higher path, and to help others do the same.
Several years ago, I was pursuing a career in the art and design industry, and felt intuitively called to visit a Zen monk in Taiwan. I couldn't fully understand it at first, but everything in my life during this time was converging to embark on this journey. I trusted my inner guidance (and some really crazy signs from the universe), and travelled to Taiwan where I ended up meeting my teacher Wu De, the founder of our Global Tea Hut
Wu De has devoted nearly 30 years of his life to tea. The experience at Global Tea Hut shifted my entire being and I found an infinitely renewed connection with Earth and Spirit. What I had been seeking was unfolding and showing me a path I recognised so well, rooted in a practice and tradition, and shared with such reverence. I returned to Hong Kong and have since been dedicated to sharing The Way of Tea, so others can explore the sacred benefits of the leaf.
