JagaSilk Teabar is open for retail 12-4, Tues-Fri.
To-go drinks and house desserts on Fridays.
We had Mr. Yamaguchi join us for JagaVision last Thursday! He had a very interesting perspective where he believes that sprays and non organic growing practices, especially artificial fertilizer, interrupt the tea drinker’s ability to truly taste the terroir of their tea.

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.
