Inside tea gardens

For over thirty years Olivier Scala has travelled the principal tea plantations of the world. He has met with knowledgeable producers and has taste tested, with them, the fruit of their harvests. Following in his father’s footsteps, he has maintained relationships and has created new ones which have permitted the company to buy some of the most amazing harvests. Olivier Scala’s son, Augustin Scala, has accompanied his father in his travels for about ten years now and taste tests and selects with him all of the high quality teas. A mutual confidence between the tea producing countries and the George Cannon company has allowed George Cannon to obtain the exclusive rights to commercialize the tea production of the Mahalderam district organic garden, Jungpana. This possibility attests to the close relations which exist between the tea producing countries and the family owned George Cannon company.
