About us


Mitsuko at Cha-Ya has such wonderful Japanese green teas and beautiful gifts -- you must go to meet her and see all that she has to offer. Cha-ya is a hidden sanctuary in the heart of Monterey! You can even get tea to-go!

The owner was quite friendly and could give you some advice about Japan trip.


Cute store with a nice selection of teas and tea accessories. The owner was friendly and helpful.

Sumo Mashumo

Quite a fine selection of Japanese goods that cannot be found elsewhere in the area. The owner is sweet, informative, and patient. The wares are wonderful, as well as the tea selection, but is a bit pricey
