    The photos are captioned Rotovane and CTC but there is no CTC machine sight and the Rotovane is also lacking! For many years I was tea-planting in Nyasaland/Malawi.With Rotovane and rollers we produced semi-orthodox and then at my next Estate,Lujeri,CTC.Now it is all LTP tea,all produced in a 0continuous process.I loved the sight of the rollers in action and the groans of the Rotovane were music to the ear.Thank you for the site.

      Hello Duncan,
      Many thanks for pointing out the oversight.I am told these are Orthodox Tea rolling machines. I have changed the caption accordingly. I am waiting for my friend Larry Brown to send me photos of Rotovane and CTC machines so i can update this post. Meanwhile if you have any photos of the same to share, please send them to me. I will credit you for them. Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your experiences. Many of us have fond memories of our tea garden days. Cheers! Shona
