Most Loved Shop in London

The people have spoken at the TimeOut Awards 2018 and we can't believe our eyes!


Oh WOW. We have been awarded as the 'Most Loved Shop in London' 2018 by TimeOut Magazine. We can't quite believe it and I am so humbled and thankful to everyone who voted for us.

This is a triumph for the True Tea movement here in the UK and around the globe. It shows how much passion and love people have for tea - the drink, the culture, the effects, the craft and the way that it changes people in such a positive way.

This award is really a testament to the blossoming community of true teaheads out there rather than solely our achievements. It makes us proud to represent this movement and spurs us on to continue to innovate ideas and bring more people on our tea journey.

A million thanks from all of us @ Mei Leaf and a Gushu fist pump from myself and Celine.
