Kogane Midori Tea Farm

This tea farm where tea is grown, made and sold, is located in Morokozawa village in the mountainous areas of Shizuoka City. Over 30 years ago, a unique yellow tea leaf was discovered, leading to a new cultivation of yellow leaves. It was named Kogane Midori (Gold Leaf). Since then, the cultivation has expanded to several fields. The tea leaves are carefully hand-picked and processed by the family that owns the tea farm. The area attracts many people who come to try its unique taste.
