Oolong tea falls right between green and black. It's only partially oxidized, so it never quite reaches the same stage as black tea.
Withering and Fermentation - Tea leaves are spread out in large groups and left to wither for four to five hours in sunlight, losing some of their moisture .
Firing – When the fermentation is half complete firing takes place. Leaves are moved over charcoal fire quickly.
Sorting - The final process involves sorting the tea leaves by size and grade.
