It all started in 2017 when the owner, Meredith, was searching for a natural remedy for her anxiety and digestive troubles. As a nutritionist and holistic cook she had a passion for plants as medicine and a knack for combining flavours. So she decided to get busy in the kitchen.

The result?

Lake and oak's signature clean, functional teas and latte blends that taste as amazing as they make you feel.

Her goal was to create unique, flavour-packed teas that were fun to drink, and had health benefits for the body and mind. And that also meant that all blends are devoid of sugar, sweeteners or so-called "natural flavours". She chooses to let the plants speak for themselves:)


The company is woman-owned and operated. They hire woman from all over Canada and partner with primarily women-led businesses.

They are incredibly dedicated to being sustainable and eco-friendly. The packaging and processes are as gentle to the planet as possible. All products are available in low-waste loose leaf packaging and recyclable glass jars. They partner with low-waste refilleries all over Canada to provide a waste free tea option. And they ship in recycled boxes and packing material.

Mental health initiatives and women's programs are also very important to them. They donate to organizations that support individuals and help bring awareness to the challenges of mental health issues so we might all begin to reduce the stigma behind mental health and addiction.
