For oolongs the fermentation process for converting green tea to black tea has been stopped. Sometimes it is suggested that the oolong is 50% oxidized. This can not be accurately stated, but it gives an indication whether the oxidation process was stopped at the beginning, about half or somewhere at the end. Sometimes Oolong is said to be "semi-fermented", which is in fact an incorrect claim, because fermentation is not really the case.

An oolong is often still close to green tea, which makes the temperature of the water used important. Keep this in mind when making your tea. Oolongs are known as soft and less bitter, than black tea.
