Good demand for Assam brokens at Guwahati auction

Our Bureau


CLEAN and liquoring Assam brokens attracted good demand but prices were lower than last following quality.

Medium Assam brokens saw less enquiry and their levels eased by Rs 3 to Rs 5. Smaller brokens in the plain and medium segments and all fannings declined even further at times and suffered some withdrawal. Cachars also followed a similar trend with clean and grainy sorts selling at around last levels. The remainder however eased.

There was fair enquiry from the major blender for all categories. Other packeteers did not operate. Better sorts continued to attract enquiry from the Gujarat and Maharashtra markets. There was fair interest from other internal dealers. One of the CIS sh ippers lent support for larger brokens and fannings.

There was less enquiry for dusts particularly for plain and medium kinds which suffered withdrawals. Levels for liquoring teas were lower in line with quality. Better medium and medium sorts on offer were considerably lower with plainer categories often neglected.
