1. LIVE AT JAGASILK TEABAR: Charles-Antoine Frandelion: Contemporary gypsy
– tickets available through JagaSilk Teabar
* Live & Unmastered CD recorded earlier in the week will be released at show*
“Charles-Antoine Frandelion is an accordeonist from St-André-de-Kamouraska, Quebec whose fascination for romanian gypsy music had him spent time with gypsies in Moldova and Romania. He is going to perform solo on his accordion and talk about his relationship with the pieces, sharing glimpses of his traveling-peasant-musician lifestyle. His integrity as a living contemporary gypsy will express itself by his simple presence and his friendship with Jared and Miyu from Jagasilk who will be serving uplifting teas and fine maccha to cheer up the evening.“

Some really nice words from Sid Cross:
I am a retired partner at a large national Canadian law firm but now for the past 10 years am actively involved internationally as both a food and wine judge.
I am co-Founder of the thriving Chefs’ Table Society of BC and judge several important competitions including the Canadian Culinary Championship, Gold Medal Plates, Lieutenant-Governor Awards For Excellence and the Canadian Wine Awards. I am really into food and wine and have been elected into the BC Restaurant Hall of Fame as a Supporter of the Industry.
I have been a green tea and maccha drinker for a long time trying many different brands.
I am so excited about your phenomenal maccha quality products that I felt compelled to send you this note to let you know.
You are outstanding entrepreneurs and all your products I have tried are excellent. Leading the way are your single cultivar 100% okumidori
Fujioka’s micro-lot “Eagle”( so round & delicate) ground tencha green tea and the “Raven” (so full & tangy)in a very close second place!
The aromatics are so interesting like smelling the complex bouquet of a very fine wine.
Appreciate how you arrange for the stone grinding of green tea leaves regularly in order to always keep the maccha so fresh.
Wonderful for us to be able to purchase them in a maximum size of 20 grams with the dates marked for both the harvest and the stone grinding. Don’t know of anyone else in this market doing that. What outstanding quality control!
Drinking it is a joy and makes me feel strong and alive! Keep up this good work.
Would like to see a wider distribution of your products in the Greater Vancouver area so more consumers could try them.
If I can help you in any way do not hesitate to call on me or feel free to use me as an enthusiastic reference.

5. NEW LINE OF MACCHA
We are proud to have released a new line of single cultivar maccha at this year’s Tea Festival.
We spent 3 years developing a relationship with master tea farmer Mr. Fujioka of Wazuka in the Uji growing region of Japan – 2 visits to him personally finally convinced him to sell to us; Mr. Fujioka has never wholesaled to anyone before!

“Eli Geddis is a restless Victoria-based musician whose folky blend of acoustic music mixes the suspiciously facetious with the endearingly sincere. Drawing inspiration from historical stories, imagined nostalgia, cold mountain weather and cultural oddities, Eli puts on a show that is intimate, funny and inclusive. Expect decent helpings of ukulele, harmonica, faux plastic tambourine, shouts and hum-alongs.”
