Tea Fact Friday - Grading

Hello, welcome to Friday again:
Today's tea fact is Grading: The final step in the manufacture of black tea. The made tea is passed through several sieves of progressively smaller mesh sizes to separate the leaves into different sizes called: GRADES. Machines have been invented to do this work but all of them use the basic principal of shaking screens with varying mesh sizes.
