Demand for quality teas at Kolkata sale

Kolkata: Last week, the selected CTC liquoring teas maintaining quality sold around last levels, while those showing a decline in quality were lower, according to tea auctioneers. Hindustan Unilever was active while there was selective enquiry from Tata Tea and other packeteers. Western India dealers operated for liquoring sorts while other internal sections were more active.

Darjeeling offerings tended lower following a decline in quality and were largely absorbed by the local market.

Nominal quantity of clean Orthodox teas met with better enquiry. Remainder sold irregularly lower following quality. Fair enquiry was seen from West Asia & CIS. North India operated on the whole leaf.
