use of "te" rather than "tu"

"nous descendrons "te" rejoindre dans la cuisine"  This is how that appeared in the corrected dictation.  What is "te" in reflexive verbs?  Is this a misprint?

Nous descendrons te rejoindre. -- We'll come down to meet you.

Te is the direct object of the sentence. It's not a misprint.

"Te" is a form of "tu" as the object of a verb. "Tu" is used when it is the subject of a verb.
