One lot of the first flush tea fetched a record-breaking price of Rs 7,500 per kilo, which will be exported to Korea. The other tea lots also fetched a good price of Rs 6000, Rs 5100, and Rs 4500 per kilo.

The main reasons for the good prices have been attributed to the tea leaf plucking, where only a bud and two leaves are plucked for manufacturing tea, the Golden Tippy appearance, and orange flowery liquor, which are in great demand among tea connoisseurs around the world.
