For our last day in Kenya we stopped by the Melvin Marsh factory. Operated by a member of the Tea Board of Kenya, this company handles packing, blending, flavoring, and direct sales of fine Kenyan tea. The taste of each blend is checked at every stage of the process, such as after mixing or filling tea bags. Melvin Marsh specializes in spiced tea; they are well known for their Masala, ginger, and cinnamon black teas, but have expanded to offer herbal teas and green tea. Selling locally and internationally, Melvin Marsh is now the largest packer and blender of flavored Kenyan teas.
Well, that about sums it up for my time abroad. Now I'm off to New York City. It's been great visiting Asia and Africa for the past few weeks, and I'm definitely looking forward to the Big Apple!
