1. JAGACLAN: Join the JagaClan: 200 Lifetime memberships: 10% off for life!!!!!
We have decided to sell a limited 200 JagaClan Memberships that give the owner 10% off everything Jaga for life.
Includes everything at the bar, maccha, tea, retail, food, AWESOME
Does not include Studio Yu purchases and is meant for one person, not pairs or groups.
2. THREE LIMITED OFFERINGS!!!! and other cool stuff
As many of you know, we are sold out of maccha at the teabar.
But loose tea is still our friend.
a) We have featured 3 different $25 Limited Offering sets this year that include 4 x 20g beautiful tea and 1 x select awesome tea tin.
b) Finally our Mason Jar Brewpots are nearing completion: Just picked up the equipment for their production today from a local metal worker!!!! If I can pull off a Dec 22 release, oh, baby!!!
c) New packaging for the loose teas – similar system to the maccha: buy a tea in a tube if you like (ex. $6.5) and get $3 off if you just want the refill pack. They look gorgeous for stocking stuffers!!! 😉
3. HOLIDAY HOURS
The teabar holiday hours:
Tues-Fri 11am-6pm, Sat (Dec 24 and Dec 31) 11am-4pm
closed Sundays and Mondays as usual. (Just coincidentally worked out)
4. CINNAMON MILK TEA LATTE?
If you have not tried the Fresh-milled Cinnamon & Ceylon Royal Milk Tea Latte, it needs to happen.
Cinnamon & Royal Milk Tea Latte – $4
South Indian micro farmed cinnamon milled every 10-20 days fresh at jagaSilk blended with Uva est Blend Ceylon from Sri Lanka’s famed Uva growing region. Ever so sweet cinnamon in the nose followed by the malty rich notes of great Uva region tea.
5. SPICED WATER
If you have not checked out our new sister cafe “Spiced Water” right nearby on Courtney St across from the Sticky Wicket, make sure you swing by.
Multi roaster coffee (Bows x Arrows Coffee Roasters today on espresso)
JagaSilk single estate teas and maccha
B-RED ridiculously awesome artisan DONUTS
House sweets made by JagaSilk (Creme caramel, epic double banana bread, organic shortbread)
If the teabar is our yin, Spiced Water is our yang.
Some comings and goings.
Graham Bouvier… has moved on to run the show over at Fernwood Coffee on the weekends as their weekend supervisor, though he can still be scene at Spicey and Jaga with psycho high tech thermometers and fantastic samples of different coffees and teas
Brendon Ross… has joined us from the Stick in the Mud out in Sooke (though he can still be seen there Fridays as the Maestro of Espresso) for whom he competed for in the 2010 Western Regional Barista Championships. The guy is super high energy and is very skilled at his craft
Raven Bleskie… has joined us from Bubby Rose’s Bakery. She has almost 5 years under her belt as a barista and is super keen on learning the Jaga perspective on tea craftsmanship. She is one of those super nice people who just is way too hard on her self, even though she does everything awesome.
David Pedde… has joined us part time from Discovery Coffee with the intent of brushing up on his tea skills – Disco serves our loose tea – and he brings a frightening memory for detail and uncanny skill for being such a new barista. Smart guy.
ELI GEDDIS LIVE
Eli’s live show was pretty incredible. Not only were his tunes super well constructed and delivered, but the man is a great MC.
The Live CD recorded at JagaSilk is $10 and definitely worth every penny.
Come pick up a copy, support a very awesome local musician, and listen to some very good songs.
