    Melvin Marsh International is a Kenyan based family business that first begun with the production of Kenya first free-flowing salt- Melvins Flow salt, in 1995. Soon after, Kenya’s first flavored teas were launched under our renowned brand - Melvins Teas. Founded on a passion for the finest tea, we focused obsessively on building a world-class company with several strong Melvin’s brands. We flavor our teas with only 100% natural ingredients. The result - A range of teas that were flavorful, fun and refreshing. Over the years as our reputation grew, and our reach spread, it became equally obvious that people throughout the country shared this desire for a cup of tea that was much more than simply refreshment, but an enjoyable, memorable and satisfying experience, leading to the launch of our very own first Tea House - Melvins TeaHouse in the upmarket Lavington Mall. Today, Melvins Teas serves millions of cups a year. The product base has expanded to include lines; not only flavored teas but herbal and fruit infusions including green, orthodox and purple tea.
