I opened CHA CHA TEA in Kingston Ontario in 2006.
I have about 100 different kinds of tea and tisanes from around the world.
The most popular tea at my store is Japanese Green Tea.
I am very happy that I can share good Japanese Green Tea with people in Kingston!!
was born and grew up in Osaka Japan,
a city with a population of about
8.8 million. I came to Canada in
1994 to learn English and to get
experience living outside of Japan.
After I moved to Kingston from Toronto
in 2004, it was very difficult for
me to get very good and fresh Japanese
Green Tea here in Kingston. That
is how I came up with the idea.
Why not start a tea shop and get
Japanese green tea directly from
tea farms in Japan?
I found a very nice location. The size is perfect for my little tea shop and my landlords are super nice people.
Finally, with my family's understanding and support, I started CHA CHA TEA.
My new journey has just begun.
I chat with a lot of people about tea and ideas about the store. I also talk about life, business, kids, culture etc. I enjoy being at CHA CHA TEA every day. Please come to my store. You are always my guest.
