Honkai Star Rail Sunright Tea Studio Event: how to attend, rewards, and meetup details

HoYoverse is no stranger to collaborations. It even held a launch week event in Times Square for Honkai Star Rail, where fans could take pictures with a replica of the Astral Express and professional cosplayers dressed as the main cast. This time, HoYoverse announced a new global event for Honkai Star Rail related to bubble tea shops. It’s directly related to the “Sunright Tea Studio Event.”

Cosmic Refreshment Supply, the global event in question, offers Honkai Star Rail fans a way to get merch by purchasing drinks from HoYoverse partners across the globe. Sunright Tea Studio, a popular bubble tea chain from California, is HoYoverse’s partner for the event in the United States. Other event partners include Happy Lemon in the Philippines, KOI in Malaysia, and CHAGEE in Singapore.

Honkai Star Rail fans in the U.S. might be confused about how they can participate in the event, especially if they haven’t heard of Sunright Tea Studio before. Thankfully, we’re here to clear that up for you. Here’s how you can participate in the Sunright Tea Studio Event and what you can get from it.

When is the Sunright Tea Studio Event?

The Sunright Tea Studio Event starts on Wednesday, July 19, and ends on Wednesday, August 30. Honkai Star Rail fans in the U.S. have over a full month to claim rewards from this event.

Unfortunately, the Sunright Tea Studio Event is limited to Sunright Tea Studio bubble tea shops. Most of them are located on the west coast in Southern California with only a few stray shops in other parts of the country near Houston, Texas, and O’Fallon, Missouri. You can view the full list of locations on Google Maps or directly on the Sunright Tea Studio website.

What drinks can I get from the Sunright Tea Studio Event?

There are two Honkai Star Rail character-themed drinks that you can buy from Sunright Tea Studio during the event. HoYoverse hasn’t indicated that they will return again in the future, so get them while you can.

  • Kafka: Blushing Blueberry Splendor
  • Blade: Karmic Chocolate Matcha

What rewards can I get from the Sunright Tea Studio Event?

Most of the rewards revolve around the Kafka and Blade collaboration drinks. All the Global Tea Ceremony Events, including the Sunright Tea Studio Event, offer complimentary cup sleeves, stickers, coasters, and redemption cards depending on the number of collaboration drinks you order from the shop. HoYoverse posted previews of the items on its official blog and on Twitter.

Here’s what you can get:

  • 1 collaboration drink: Get a complimentary, randomized cup sleeve and redemption card.
  • 2+ collaboration drinks: Get a pair of coasters, two randomized cup sleeves, and a redemption card per drink.

Don’t worry if the Kafka and Blade drink flavors don’t match your tastes. You can still get a sticker when you buy any drink from Sunright Tea Studio during the event.

What is the Sunright Tea Studio Fan Meet-Up?

The Sunright Tea Studio Fan Meet-Up is a separate event from the Sunright Tea Studio Event. The general event is an ongoing deal where you can earn free merch. The fan meetup is on a specific date at a specific place. It’s only happening in the Sunright Tea Studio in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo.

Here are the details for the Honkai Star Rail Sunright Tea Studio Fan Meet-Up:

  • Date/Time: Saturday, July 29 from 2 to 4 PM Pacific
  • Location: 134 South Central Ave, Los Angeles

You need to RSVP for the meetup, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get in. HoYoverse hasn’t specified exactly how it’ll be reviewing its applications, but it will be “finalizing the guest list based on various factors.”

As per the official announcement, Kafka and Blade are apparently going to be there. Based on what’s happened at past HoYoverse events, that might mean that professional cosplayers dressed as Kafka and Blade will appear on-site. If you show up in your own Honkai Star Rail cosplay, you will get a free Trailblazer postcard (while supplies last).

Gaming monitors don't have to break the bank, as there are affordable but dependable options like the 24-inch Onn Full HD gaming monitor. Already relatively cheap at its original price of $149, it's further down to just $99 if you're able to take advantage of Walmart's $50 discount. We're not sure how long this bargain will last though, so if you want to get this display for less than $100, you're going to have to push through with the transaction as soon as possible.

Why you should buy the 24-inch Onn Full HD gaming monitor
The 24-inch Onn Full HD gaming monitor is clear and colorful enough to let you appreciate the best PC games while you play them.

Meanwhile, the response time is how quickly the monitor shows image transitions, so at 1ms, it will have no trouble with fast-paced action titles.

The best Legion Arms in Lies of P
A puppet showing a mechanical arm.

Being a puppet in Lies of P offers you plenty of advantages that more organic creatures like us don't have access to. Somewhat like Sekiro, your mechanical boy has multiple prosthetic arms that can be swapped out to give you access to different powerful abilities alongside your standard weapon. Each prosthetic, called Legion Arms, can completely change up your strategy and how you approach encounters and can be upgraded to be even more potent. Upgrades, of course, aren't free. Since you can't realistically invest in all the Legion Arms in the game, we'll run down the best ones in Lies of P so you can crush your foes and finally reach the ending.
Best Legion Arms

We begin with a simple Legion Arm, but one that can't be denied as at least one of the best, no matter the situation. Aegis lets you whip out a shield to deflect an enemy attack, but it doesn't end there. Any enemy foolish enough to hit it will also get an explosion in their face as retaliation. Through upgrades, you can even make it so you're free to attack while still holding up your block. Unlike many other arms that are more situational, Aegis is great whether you're fighting regular mobs or a boss.
Falcon Eyes
Your ranged options in Lies of P are normally very limited, to say the least. While even this great arm can't turn the game into a third-person shooter, Falcon Eyes can certainly help soften up, or even clean up, enemies from a nice, safe distance. By default, you will shoot an explosive bullet at whatever you're targeting and can upgrade it to simply fire more. So long as you can get some distance from an enemy, this is another Legion Arm that will serve you well in nearly all scenarios.
While everyone has their elemental preferences, it's hard to deny that the Fulminis doesn't make electricity feel like the absolute best in the game. After charging up this arm as much or as little as you want, you can dish out a bolt of lightning that chains between enemies and even paralyzes them. This is a short-range, shotgun-like blast but very effective. After upgrading it, you can even charge while moving to make landing a full damage blast easier.
Puppet String
There are no strings on you, but you can put them on your foes with the Puppet String arm. Functioning like the popular Snatch move from other action games, this grappling hook lets you yank enemies towards you from afar to attack with your primary weapon. This isn't only fun and satisfying, but useful in breaking up groups and isolating enemies. If you upgrade it, you can reverse the function by pulling yourself toward an enemy instead.
Acid is a tricky thing in Lies of P, but if you can master it with the Pandemonium it will serve you quite well. This arm squirts out a pool of acid that will damage anything standing inside it, making it potentially great for chipping down at entire groups or a single large, slow target's health. You can upgrade it to shoot further, plus explode once the acid pool evaporates. It's harder to make work all the time, but well worth it when you can.
