Our Story

We are Kenya’s pioneering brand of flavoured tea.

Before Melvins, the Kenyan tea market provided just one packaged option — unflavoured tea. We believed there were many tea lovers like us who craved something refreshingly different — fun and flavourful teas which they could enjoy every day.

So, in 1995, we created Kenya’s very first flavoured tea. Melvins Tangawizi (Ginger) Chai was an instant hit and led to the full range of Melvins Teas which now include black and green tea blends, fruit and herbal infusions, and orthodox, purple, and white teas.

Today we are proud to say that Melvins is a renowned Kenyan brand committed to innovating and elevating your tea experience. We use only 100% all natural Kenyan-grown ingredients, we produce and package our teas right here in Kenya.

Who is Melvin?

There’s not much we’re allowed to tell you. Melvin is a man of mystery. A cool cat, the world’s diplomat. He’s a mover and a shaker—and above all, a tea maker.

Our Guarantee

Melvins Teas are 100% natural — no artificial flavours, additives, or preservatives of any kind. Just the finest tea from the Kenyan highlands grown without pesticides or chemicals. Blended with natural herbs, spices, botanicals, sourced directly from Kenyan farmers and freshly ground to our specifications.
