Our Story

Teassential is a new business in Downtown Vernon that is locally owned and operated by Alysia Lor-Knill and Tyrone Knill. We focus on finding the best quality teas to offer our customers. We’ve worked hard to create a space where customers feel comfortable to explore the world of tea!  We want to make sure that tea is an affordable luxury that can be enjoyed by everyone.

We've always been fascinated by tea and all the options it provides. We carry over 130 varieties of tea to ensure we have something for everyone! We specialize in Persian teas which we blend in-house! We also carry a variety of teaware ranging from locally handmade pieces, cast iron teapots, mugs, teacups and everything else you need to make the perfect cup of tea!
