ABOUT THE STARTER
Gordon Davis and his wife Laura are the owners of Whimsy Tea Company, supported by Innovate Springfield in Springfield, Illinois. Gordon was inspired to start
this business because he and his wife Laura couldn’t find the teas they loved, and wanted to promote a healthier lifestyle. The couple’s skills compliment each other as Gordon enjoys working directly with importers and their suppliers to learn all he can about the product, and his wife works with the day-to-day business operations. WhimsyTeaCompany believes that tea is not just a beverage, it’s a lifestyle. It offers us an opportunity to calm our minds and spirits while nourishing our bodies.
