Tea auction sees 6 MnKg come under hammer this week

The tea auctions saw six MnKgs of Ceylon Tea come under the hammer this week, an increase of 0.6 MnKg from the previous week.


Forbes & Walker Tea Brokers in its latest tea report stated there was good general demand at lower levels. 
“Perhaps the larger volume on offer and the increase in volumes in the forthcoming sales resulted in a lesser intensity in bidding and consequently, an easier market,” the report stated.


Ex-Estate offerings comprised of 0.9 MnKgs, a fairly significant increase from 0.6 MnKgs offerings over the past three months and more. 


Forbes & Walker said that the overall quality of offerings too were lower to last, although still continued to have on offer a selection of fairly useful teas.
