LEAF : 8.30 am to 6.30 pm
DUST & SUPP : 10.30 am to 2.35 pm
CTC LEAF: 38,556 packages of Current Season & 330 packages of Old Season Teas on offer met with much improved demand but at easier rates.
BROKENS: A handful of well made Brokens sold well although prices declined by Tk.10/- over last. Medium varieties generally met with only a fair demand and there were several withdrawals. Plain teas met with only some support but again declined by Tk.10/- and more and there were quite heavy withdrawals.
FANNINGS: A handful of improved liquoring invoices attracted fair competition and sold well often at easier rates. Medium varieties were well supported but eased by Tk.10/- over last. However, plain types were difficult of sale and only a few sold at a greater discount.
CTC DUST: 7,975 packages of Current Season Teas on offer met with a good demand. Good liquoring varieties particularly CDs met with a good competition and sold well in line with quality. Others were barely steady to easier with quite fair withdrawals. Blenders lent good support with fair interest from the Loose tea buyers.
COMMENTS: There was more tea on offer this week. However, general quality continued to be rather plain. There was good support from the Blenders whilst Loose tea buyers were selective.
A bright feature of the sale was the higher prices fetched for a few improved invoices.
It was noteworthy that although withdrawals were much less than last week, BLF teas were the exception where the bulk remained unsold.
