Revolutionary Process Found In Ceylon QUICK AND ECONOMICAL Rec. 11 a.m. LONDON, Aug. 1. A revolutionary process for the manufacture of tea, greatly reducing the time and cost of production, has been evolved by the Ceylon Tea Research Institute. This new and simplified process will eliminate withering, rolling and grading, and will take no more than two hours, compared with 24 hours or more for the old process. The green leaf is reduced almost instantaneously to pulp by passing through stainless steel rollers. Fermentation is complete in an hour, and \he puip is then dried. Ordinary tea is drier. The tea tasters say that tea manufactured under the new process is 50 per cent stronger than ordinary tea, making it more economical
