Cha: An Asian Literary Journal is the first Hong Kong-based online English literary journal. It was founded in 2007, a decade after the handover, by Tammy Ho Lai-Ming and Jeff Zroback. The editorial team also includes Reviews Editor Eddie Tay.
Cha was named Best New Online Magazine of 2008 and Best Online Magazine of 2011 by storySouth's Million Writers Award and was selected as The Gatekeeper's Site of the Week (Wednesday 1 July 2009), on Meet at the Gate, the website of Scottish publisher Canongate Books. Work published in Cha has been selected for publication in Best of the Web and Best of the Net anthologies (2009). A special feature of the journal is its critique column, "A Cup of Fine Tea", in which previously published works are discussed.
Cha is currently catalogued in the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) Library and other places.
Article in "U.S./China media brief" (website of UCLA Asian American Studies Centre) mentions Cha: "In Hong Kong, besides traditional university-based journals, new internet-based journals including Cha have embraced a more pan-Asian perspective and have included Chinese American writers as well."
