Then by pressing another switch the sequential  operation of tea transfer from hopper to drum takes place. By pressing the Drum start button the drums starts rotating. Blending time is 20 rounds or 5 mins and the discharge time of tea from drum is 10 - 12 mins.

Unique designs of the blades inside the drum and the discharge valves helps to take out Blended Tea from inside the drum while it is in rotation. After the tea is blended, this discharge valves on both sides of the drums will have to be opened for faster and easier discharge of tea till the last grain.
