Low growns in demand
A quantity of 6.1 million kilos came under the hammer last week of which ex-estates comprised 0.84 million Kilos.
Eastern Brokers said that Low growns met with good demand which resulted in a firm to dearer market prevailing for most varieties with the exception of the OPís and OPAís which declined.
Quality of teas on offer in ex-estate catalogues showed an improvement and consequently a firm to dearer trend prevailed. Most BOPFís continue to command a premium over its corresponding BOPís. A selection of Uva offerings which showed an improvement in seasonal quality appreciated substantially following special enquiry. Others too appreciated but to a lesser extent.
There was fair demand for most off grades which saw prices ruling firm to marginally dearer. The poorer sorts however declined.
Dusts met a firm to dearer trend allround.
