Win a Year of Mei Leaf Cakes!

Our Biggest Competition EVER is ON!


To celebrate the release of the Gong Fu Code, we are ending the year with a HUGE Competition. We will be giving one lucky winner EVERY SINGLE TEA CAKE RELEASED IN 2020. That includes Raw PuErh, Ripe PuErh and Aged White Teas (including a possible Jade Star V).

The Gong Fu Code is much more than a tea tray to us. It represents our foundational intention to bring the positivity of tea to more people's lives. Tea is transformative and revelatory - it inspires, calms and elevates us all to a happier and healthier way of living.⁠ It represents the CODE of living - a set of principals which tea inspires in us.

If you would like to learn more about the Gong Fu Code then check out the tray and watch the video.

So, we are asking you to share with us what Gong Fu Tea means to YOU. Which life principles has tea taught you or reminds you of every you time you brew?

Below you can read some quotes which I have written and a picture that we have taken to complement the quote. We are asking you to write your personal quote and take a picture to share with us - an opportunity for you to be creative and celebrate tea.

The quote has to be original but it can be simple, humorous, casual or ANYTHING as long as it is a personal representation of your Gong Fu Code. The picture has to be original and should complement the quote.

The winner will be selected by our tea community from our shortlist of 20 entries. The shortlist will be compiled by Mei Leaf staff. We will be sharing the entries for a week of voting and the most loved quote/picture will win.

Let's sprinkle the world with tea positivity as we move into 2020 - so get creative and share your love of the Good Stuff!




WINNER: Every single Mei Leaf Tea Cake release in 2020 sent free anywhere in the World at the time of release.

1. Write a quote representing your Gong Fu Code which is ORIGINAL and personal to you. This could mean:

A life principle that tea has taught you or reminds you.

An observation about tea or brewing which has a wider meaning.

It can be philosophical, humorous, simple or complex but please try to keep it to a couple of sentences maximum - we are not writing essays!

2. Take a picture which complements the quote. This will probably involve tea but not necessarily.

3. Post the picture on Instagram and write the quote as the caption. You can overlay the quote over the image too but this is not necessary.

4. Follow @mei_leaf

5. Tag @mei_leaf

6. Add #GongFuCode in the caption. 


Entries will be eligible between 30th November and 30th December 2019. All entries after midnight UK on 30th will not qualify. We will gather all entries and create a shortlist of our favourite 20 entries selected by the Mei Leaf staff.

These shortlisted entries will be posted on our Instagram Stories and saved as highlights for the tea community to rate using a rating slider. Rating will be between 2nd January and 9th January.

On 9th January the winners and runners up will be selected based on the average rating. In the event of a tie on rating the highest number of votes wins, in the event of another tie, the Mei Leaf staff will choose a winner.

The winners will be announced on the 11th of January.


1. You can enter as many unique entries as you wish for more chances of winning. The quote and picture MUST be different otherwise it will be considered a duplicate entry.
