In September of 2005, O-Cha.com was contacted by producers from The Discovery Channel for assistance in producing a green tea video documentary. Production started on October 4th, 2005 in the fields and factory of O-Cha.com's main green tea supplier in Shizuoka, Japan.

After filming the main growing fields, the crew moved on to the factory, picking up additional footage at a growing area adjacent to the factory before heading inside. In the documentary, O-Cha.com founder and President Kevin Moore shows the stages of green tea production, from harvest through rolling and drying.
The tea ceremony house located at the Ocha-no-Sato green tea museum in Kanaya, Shizuoka provided the perfect setting for the segment on the Japanese tea ceremony.
