The name of this sencha 'Midori no Soyokaze' is the title of a children's song that came out in 1946. This song became popular for its music and lyrics that sung the bright, happy atmosphere of the spring. The songwriter that lived in Saitama Prefecture offered Oisakien to make a tea that represented the image of this song. Given such offer, Oisakien blended 'yabukita' and 'fukumidori' to create a tea that expressed the bright, happy, and vivid green image of the song.
