The Orange Pekoe orthodox leaf grade of Chamraj Estate topped Sale No: 25 of Coonoor Tea Trade Association auctions fetching Rs 220 a kg.

“The future of orthodox tea depends on innovation such as Chamraj’s new 50-gm imported food-grade porcelain Toda-lifestyle memento containers of high-value tea which has become a favourite with corporates for presentations to their chosen contacts. The ‘porcelain elegance’ is the latest for discerning connoisseurs of tea. These high-elevation Nilgiri speciality teas are amenable for flavouring and a new range of flavoured teas will be launched soon”, UPASI’s past President D. Hegde told Business Line.
