The DMCC Tea Centre has facilities and equipment lines for the packing of both bagged and loose teas, depending on the requirements and specifications of the end user. Our temperature-controlled tea bag packaging facility has the capacity to pack a variety of tea bags, including both paper envelopes and service types. Alternately, our loose tea packing facility is able to pack anything from 50 grams to 1 kg of crushed, torn and curled teas, as well as orthodox or leaf tea varieties, while larger packing sizes can also be accommodated to meet specific client requirements.
The DMCC Tea Centre’s blending facilities are one of the reasons that Dubai has been able to develop into a top market for the re-export of mixed-origin teas. In a first for the region, we have a two-tonne drum system for the blending of both CTC and orthodox or leaf teas. To complement this processing capacity offer in-house tea tasting and blending expertise in a centralised tea tasting room to ensure that our members can develop the best product for their customers. We provide both tea tasting equipment and experienced and knowledgeable staff to host tastings.
The DMCC Tea Centre warehouse facility within the Jebel Ali Free Zone has the capacity to store up to 5,000 metric tonnes of bulk teas at any given time. We provide a free allocation of storage to all of our members and we also offer companies the option to lease space within purpose-built premises. The units vary from approximately 250 square feet to 350 square feet, and provided our clients with the a flexible solution in handling their varying business requirements, as well the unique clustering benefits of being physically located alongside other industry participants.
