ORGANIC CUSTARD PUDDING MADE FRESH AT THE TEABAR

Every morning we have been perfecting the simple but beautiful art of good custard pudding.
Recent experiments have even found us creating a really nicely balanced black tea custard pudding.
Made with organic free range eggs, organic milk, organic & fair trade sugar from Paraguay, and organic whipped cream from Avalon dairy in Vancouver, we have had a fantastic response.

They are baked right into a little 4oz mason jar, allowing unfortunate souls that do not have the time to stick around the chance to enjoy one outside the teabar.

$2.25 ea at the teabar
$1 deposit to bring it home

Pairs beautifully with pour-over Rani Estate Assam 2nd Flush
ADRIAN BRONSON IN RECITAL – TEA BY JAGASILK AT INTERMISSION

Richard Wagner’s “Wesendonck Lieder”
Beethoven’s “Violin & Piano Sonata” (Op. 24)

We will be serving tea during the intermission, and an array of items will be up for grabs in our silent auction.

“Don’t miss this fabulous evening of entertainment, featuring some of Victoria’s brightest up-and-coming musicians.”

RADIATION ANALYSIS: JagaSilk believes in education, analysis and intuition

– When we first got the news about the tsunami, earthquake, and nuclear crisis, we were worried for family, friends, suppliers, the world. We spent many sleepless nights trying to understand what was and is occurring.
– We consider our business to be an extension of our selves. Therefore, we decided the most appropriate action to take in negotiating the impact of the nuclear crisis was to get educated and to get our product tested. After that, we would make some decisions.
– We buy our tea from Uji, Kyoto, Japan. It is over 700km away from Fukushima and tests from the Japanese government (below), the Canada Border Services Agency, the E.U., and a third party lab have confirmed that radiation is not detected in tea from Uji.
– We are getting our tea tested with every shipment.
– There was no graphite in the core at Fukushima and so it will not affect, for example, pasta made in Italy (in the Chernobyl tragedy, graphite was in the reaction and the subsequent explosion blew radiation up into the atmosphere, making the accident international).
– The accident is heavily localised (although the release into the ocean has affected coastal areas)
– Strangely enough (just to put things in context) it seems that radiation levels in New York, Singapore and Hong Kong are all higher than Tokyo. That was interesting to read.
– In the end, our research, analysis and intuition have us really enjoying the 2011 harvest from Uji
