I am a tea drinker and love the assortment of teas available at Teassential! The owner is great and has all the teas in little viles to smell! I love the Rooibos and the fact that she sources the teas from across Canada!

Located in the lovely Main Street of original Vernon, this tea shoppe is filled with simple & effective charm. I just want to sit and sip tea all day long. It is obvious how much the owner enjoys her shop, and is very knowledgable!
