Issue #11 of JagaSpam: Tunes for Nippon, Groupon, Cake…

TUNES FOR NIPPON

Our good friends Cory and Kyle are putting on a concert at Felicita’s on the 30th from 8:30pm-1:00am featuring 5 bands for a minimum donation of $5. This will go toward the relief efforts in Japan and very specifically a portion will be directed toward the Kurota family (lost their home and so much by being in the epicentre, though escaped with their lives). Both a broader and very localized goal at the same time.

That being said, many of you have written in expressing concern over Miyu’s family and the Harimaen estate. Both our supply and Miyu’s family are safe and just dealing with aftershocks and the economic trauma of the crisis. The Harimaen estate is far enough from the nuclear crisis that their certification is not in trouble, but to assuage concerns they have sent us lab reports and will continue to do so. There is a frighteningly low level of batteries, bottled water, iodine pills, etc, in the country.

JAGASILK IS ON GROUPON

Less than 7 hours left in the Groupon side feature for JagaSilk. $5 will buy you $10 at the teabar and the coupon is good for a year. Many of you may be coming by regardless, and this may be redundant, but it seems that this might be a good way for you to bring friends down for some Jaga goodness.   🙂

There is another coupon for $15 that buys you a $30 coupon at the Academy of tea. You need to open the buy button up first, though.


NEW DESSERT AND FOOD ENERGY

We are now working with the amazing culinary powers of Orange Duck Icecream company to design a dessert menu at JagaSilk that includes weekly feature cakes, organic cookies, simple pairing for the flat bread, etc.

Last week features a Mango Compote Angel Cake that had Pinot Grigio, rooibos, mango, and vanilla bean in the compote. This week coming up shall be very special.


UZUKI (YEAR OF THE RABBIT) LIMITED SELECTION LOOSE TEAS

UZUKI features: Organic Jungpana Estate Darjeeling,  Organic Harimaen Estate Bancha, Organic & Fair Trade Jasmine from the Shan Tuyet region of Vietnam, and an herbal blend put together by Miyu to put a spring in your step: Energy Infuser (featuring an all organic herbal blend of Oregon Peppermint, Orange Peel, and Lemongrass)

$30 per box and includes a non-leeching tea tin made in Japan.

NEW MACCHA MENU

We have redesigned our menu at the teabar to showcase a new concept: 1g or 2g maccha. So good. The attached picture was poured by the secret power barista Kanae Morioka.

For those of you have not tried the maccha cappuccino, the time is now. So freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!
