STF nabs massive haul of refuse tea

A stock of 33,685 kilos of refuse tea readied for distribution to shops was found hidden in two storerooms in Wolfendhal Street, Colombo, by the STF on Sunday.

STF sources said the value of the stock exceeded Rs. 5 million.

The STF is conducting continuous raids to bust the refuse tea racket which also involved the export of refuse tea as genuine Ceylon tea, to prevent dilution of the image of the product in the international market.
