Tea farmer Hiromitsu Sato, whose Kogane Midori Tea Garden is located in the mountain village of Morokozawa, Aoi Ward, Shizuoka, discovered years ago a single plant that had mutated so that its new leaves in the spring flush appeared yellow while still young. He spent years propagating this single plant creating a single field of a new cultivar called Kogane Midori - Golden Green.
