Dewdrop Herbal Tea Co. was started in 2014 out of a need that owner Amy Dewey had. She was having trouble sleeping. Amy knew that she wanted to find a safe and healthy solution to the problem and had tried other teas in the past. This time she decided to create something that didn't have any artificial colors or flavors so that it was more healthy, but still delicious.
After a lot of research, taste testing, and trial and error, she created, "The Favorite." "The Favorite" helped me to over come my sleep issues and anxiety. It also was the start to this amazing business venture and that is why it is my "favorite."" Amy Dewey said when asked about the product. After Amy created this blend she started to share it with friends and family, they loved it, and Amy knew she had to share it with everyone.
Shortly after this creation, Amy found out she was pregnant with her first child. She found that her morning sickness was going to be a tough hurdle get through, she says hers was "extreme." After more research and testing, she created "Cinnamint" which she says, "...was a lifesaver for me during my pregnancy. It allowed me to function and really minimized my morning sickness." Amy had so much fun and passion for what she was doing that she created the other 4 blends through the same processes and launched Dewdrop Herbal Tea Co.
Amy was so passionate about the company and it's products that she quit her high paying full time career to focus all of her attention to it. "It was crazy! My family thought I was crazy! I left a high paying career with benefits to follow my dream of being a business owner doing something I am passionate about. I started it on my own with only my savings to support me and get this company off the ground."
There were lean times when Amy wasn't sure how she was going to keep it going, but she never let the pressure get to her and has made Dewdrop Herbal Tea Co. into a viable company that has continued sustainable growth. The company is planning to launch 2 new flavors in the upcoming months and is in negotiations with a couple health food chains that may be taking on her product shortly. Despite the growth, Amy continues to stay humble and focused on maintaining high quality and healthy products that taste great.
