FIRE OR SMOKE - When tea has been in the proximity of a fire the packages may be scorched as well as perhaps suffering water damage by the use of preventative action against the fire. There may be occasions when the contents of the packages suffer smoke damage while the chests themselves remain clean. When tea is found to be tainted with smoke, difficulty may arise in deciding whether the tea was affected in course of production or during transportation. In such instances it would be advisable for enquiries to be made of the shippers to ascertain whether or not the tea had been reported smoke tainted prior to shipment. It might on occasions be necessary to obtain an expert tea taster's advice for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not the tea is smoke tainted.
