Despite a declining price trend for several varieties, select high-priced teas ruled dearer at Kochi auctions.

Teas in the range of ₹100-125 per kg barely remained steady. Lower medium and plainer blacker teas were steady to firm, while browner teas showed a decline.

In sale no 50, the quantity on offer in CTC dust was 10,00,000 kg. Regional blenders and Kerala State Civil Supplies Corporation lent fair support. Improved enquiry was noticed from Kerala loose tea traders and upcountry buyers.

In orthodox dust, the quantity on offer was 7,500 kg and exporters continued to be the mainstay.

Monica SFD topped dust category with ₹161/kg. In leaf, Glenfern-Super Lacha (Green Tea) fetched ₹310.
