8 years ago, a few friends and family gathered in my living room to support me in a new endeavor.
It was a small dream funded by our property tax refund to bring great quality loose leaf teas to anyone tired of dusty tea scented water.
In the last 8 years I have learned a lot, grown a lot, and my little tea company dream has expanded a LOT!
While I may have started by selling in my living room and the living rooms of my supportive loved ones, our teas are now sold at retailers in 14 different states, and that is just the beginning.
I started by offering pre-made blends that I discovered and loved. Now I have created over 100 different recipes that I rotate through the seasons as well as custom blends for some pretty special clients, and still that is only the beginning.
Through the journey of the last 8 years I have learned a lot about myself and business. I have learned that building a business is so very similar to raising children. The majority of the time is spent praying you are doing it right while convinced you are doing everything wrong.
The most important thing I have learned through this process is that it isn't possible to be successful if you are doing it alone. I have so many people to thank for the continued progress in Loving Cup Teas, the least of which are my faithful customers. You have no idea how grateful I am every day to see that my little dream is bringing comfort and joy to people around me.
As we move into the Holiday season. I look forward to new and exciting additions and plans for the coming year that I can not wait to share with you.
Until then. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you for your support, your feedback, and your continued patronage. I can't wait to see where the next 8 years finds us!
I look forward to sharing tea with you very soon!
