This is a list of documentaries related to tea that I've gathered over the last couple years. I am still discovering new ones all the time, so I will edit them in as I find them. If you happen to have any suggestions on documentaries/videos to add to the list, just post them as a reply and I will add them.

Also, if any of the links are broken or lead to videos that do not exist, let me know please and I will try to find a replacement link.

Many of them are from CCTV, but there are a few others as well.

The Tea Explorer, just released this year. Still being shown at various tea venues and airing occasionally on Canadian television. Not been released online or on dvd or digital yet.
