"Prices plunging"

To provide some perspective, auction prices have fallen in line with, perhaps a few cents more than previous years in Kolkata/Guwahati. Auction sizes are currently tiny and few teas on offer are of export quality. Yes - there is over-production and a large carryover, but this is mainly CTC types, not the Orthodox teas which Iran buys. Some context and cooler heads/clearer eyes are required when looking at tea markets.
