CTC LEAF: 57,798 packages of Current Season and 70 packages of Old Season teas on offer met with a fair demand at irregular rates.
BROKENS: Good Brokens were a bright feature of the sale and were mostly dearer following competition. Other Brokens met with a fair demand but eased further with fair withdrawals. Plainer types were often difficult of sale with more withdrawals. Poor varieties met with only a little interest with heavy withdrawals.
FANNINGS: Good Fannings met with a strong market and were a touch dearer following competition. Other varieties met with a fair demand but were easier with several withdrawals. Plain and poor varieties met with much less interest and there were heavier withdrawals.
CTC DUST: 10,530 packages of Current Season teas met with a fairly good demand. Clean, well made, good liquoring teas met with a good competition and sold at firm to dearer rates. Medium teas sold at around last levels. Plain and BLF teas were an easier market with quite fair withdrawals. Blenders lent good support with fair interest from the Loose tea buyers.
COMMENTS: Demand was rather erratic this week. A few better liquoring types were well received and were dearer following competition but all others declined and there were very heavy withdrawals. Blenders were the mainstay of the market with some interest from the Loose tea buyers. Reprinted teas once again proved difficult of sale and were mostly withdrawn.
Dusts sold well.
