The freshly plucked tea leaves are first air-dried on cloth in the open air and sunlight, then rolled in cylindrical bamboo baskets to break the leaves and start the fermentation process. After reaching the desired level of fermentation, the tea is dried at a low temperature.

Oolong, which means "Black Dragon," originates from an ancient Chinese legend and may refer to the black serpents occasionally found coiled around tea bushes.
