A volume of 4.93 lakh kg has been catalogued for the Dust Sale No: 41 of Coonoor Tea Trade Association to be held on Friday. Together with 11.68 lakh kg of Leaf, the total volume offered for this week is 16.61 lakh kg. This is as much as 3.71 lakh kg more than last week’s offer.

Among the dusts, only 66,000 kg belongs to orthodox while 4.27 lakh kg, CTC. Last week, some teas were sold for as low as ₹38 a kg. “At such low prices, neither the factory nor the grower gets any worthwhile return.

As we fear that some such tea is used for adulteration, we have requested Tea Board to initiate necessary steps to rid the market of such vulnerable teas,” Ramesh Bhojarajan, President, The Nilgiri Bought Leaf Tea Manufacturers’ Association, told BusinessLine.
