CTC LEAF: 55,152 packages of Current Season and 1080 packages of Old Season Teas on offer met with a strong demand.
BROKENS: Good Brokens were a strong feature and were mostly dearer often by upto Tk.5/-. Mediums were about steady. However, plainer types met with a fair demand at lower rates with some withdrawals. Poorest continued to be difficult of sale with very heavy withdrawals.
FANNINGS: Bright Fannings met with a good demand and were fully firm to occasionally dearer. Medium types saw a better demand and were firm to slightly dearer. Plain varieties saw some enquiry and sold at irregularly easier rates. Poor varieties saw a little more enquiry but there were quite heavy withdrawals.
CTC DUST: 10,474 packages of Current Season Teas on offer met with a fairly good demand. Best and good liquoring Dusts were firm to slightly dearer. Medium sorts sold well at around last levels. BLF Dust met with a slightly better demand following some improvement in quality. However, plainer types witnessed some withdrawals. Blenders once again lent good support with fair interest from the Loose tea buyers.
COMMENTS: This sale comprised of a much larger weight of tea than last but offerings were quite well absorbed without a decline in price. Blenders lent strong support whilst there was more interest from the Loose tea buyers. As a result of increased activity, the withdrawal percentage was lower and overall sale average was also higher.
BLF varieties saw a little more enquiry but prices realised were irregular. There was again very heavy withdrawals in this section.
Dusts met with an improved demand.
