CTC LEAF: 65,698 packages of Current Season & 280 packages of Old Season Teas on offer once again met with less demand and prices eased further. There were heavier withdrawals.
BROKENS: Good Brokens met with a fairly good enquiry at the beginning but demand slackened thereafter with prices dropping by Tk.5/- to Tk.8/- with fair withdrawals. Medium Brokens met with a similar trend. Plain types were difficult of sale with heavier withdrawals. Poor varieties met with some enquiry but again at lower rates.
FANNINGS: In this section also buyers were less active particularly at the latter half of the sale and prices fell further. There were also quite heavy withdrawals in all varieties particularly for the Plain and poor types.
CTC DUST: 11,780 packages of Current Season & 20 packages of Old Season Teas on offer met with a good general demand. Clean, well made, best liquoring teas sold at around last levels. Good and Medium teas were barely steady and tending easier in line with quality. Plain and BLF teas met with less demand and also witnessed fair withdrawals. Blenders lent strong support with fair interest from the Loose tea buyers.
COMMENTS: A larger weight of tea was offered this week but owing to lack of competition prices declined further and there were also heavy withdrawals particularly for the plain and poor varieties. However, two major Blenders were the mainstay of the market who absorbed the bulk of offerings.
Dusts were an easier market.
