Tejpatta (Bay Leaf) has aromatic leaves which are used for culinary and medicinal purposes. It is thought to have been one of the major sources of the medicinal plant leaves known in classic and medieval times as malabathrum (or malobathrum). True tejpat leaves impart a strong cassia- or cinnamon-like aroma to dishes.

PR Exports aims to provide premium quality super grade bay leaves to our customers. Dried bay leaves are very delicate products and need extensive care in the handling. Therefore, we take utmost precautions so that you receive your order with almost zero impurities/ torn leaves. However, it should be noted wrt bulk orders, most of the segregation, removal of impurities such as barks, stems and torn leaves and packaging in cartons is done manually, so it’s natural that 1-2% of impurities/ torn leaves might get through despite our best efforts. A 5% tolerance is allowed for errors for Extra Class category (superior quality category) of agri products to be sold in international markets.Similar issue will not arise as far as retail orders are concerned.
