To get an understanding of what we are milling at JagaSilk, we utilize a tool called a granular gauge. We essentially make a thick paste and run it through the channel pictured above and as you can see we are sitting between 5 and 10 microns on this particular batch. We run this test on every kg that we mill, and taste a sample of every kg that we mill. We have been able to do side by side comparisons with maccha milled on traditional granite stone and our “space age” mill that matches the teeth of traditional plates but cools with water running inside. The results are that we have some very good control over particle size and have been getting good responses from the farmers that we work with when we send them samples (or drink with them as we did in 2019 before pandemic).

We have focused on fresh-milled maccha green tea and its tools since 2005, inspiring our micro-milled tea lattes and a farm direct rotating line of loose teas, as well as our precision based approach to kombucha brewing. We are a teabar, a wholesaler and a tea academy based out of Victoria, BC, Canada. We believe in beauty, balance and ethical business.
Our goal is to act as nodes of knowledge for the maccha world outside of Japan. This means that what we learn often shifts or augments the information here and there are always updates worth checking out on our website. A plethora of info on what defines maccha, how to understand it, prepare it, and the best maccha and tools we can source for sale will meet the curious reader.
It is our hope that we can effect change in the tea industry by encouraging small batches of fresh tea being imported, rather than the current norm of buying in massive volume and selling aging stock from a hot and stuffy warehouse. We hope to encourage traceability so that our customers know when the tea was harvested, when it was prepared, where it’s from, and how the workers are treated. We hope to offer education so that what we learn about the complexities of teas from… Read More…
