Dawn Patton is the owner of Try My T, which has made a name for itself as a powerhouse brand after receiving the People’s Choice Award at the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas, defeating 13 other iced teas on the market. Try My T also took home the Bronze Medal at the Global Tea Championship in 2017. Prior to Patton taking over the company, her daughter, Darrah, was the owner. Darrah created Try My T in 2014, so that she could have money as a college student to offset some of her college tuition and living expenses. Patton is the first and currently the only local Black female iced tea vendor to secure a placement in two Los Angeles sports stadiums. She is joining the wave of women of color who are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in America. Try My T has been invited to sell the tea during the Los Angeles Rams football games at the coliseum for the 2018-2019 season.
