Is oolong tea green or black?
Oolong, like both green and black tea, originates from the camellia sinensis plant. The difference between these teas lies in how they're processed. Oolong is fermented and allowed to partially oxidize, while green tea is not. Black tea is fully fermented and oxidized, which gives it the characteristic black color.
