Week 46, 2019

Tea market report 11 – 15 November 2019

In Kenya, both sides of the Rift – EoR & WoR, received again very useful showers resulting in a further improvement in leaf intake. A direct consequence are higher auction volumes in the coming weeks, with 161K pgks next week, 164K in week 48 and 165K in the first week of December. This week the market opened on an easier note with fairly good absorption from the start and ending with 11.6% outlots.  There are ongoing discussions whether an extra auction should be held in week 52, which is for final decision for next week.
