Black tea is allowed to wither and is proceeded with oxidation, where water evaporates out of the leaf and the leaf absorbs more oxygen. Black teas usually undergo full oxidation, and results in the characteristic dark brown and black leaf. Black tea typically has more robust and pronounced flavors and, when brewed appropriately, a higher caffeine content compared to other teas (50-65% of coffee, depending on the type and brewing technique).

Oolong teas are partially oxidized,  possessing some qualities of both green and black teas. They are known for their aromatic, fruity, sometimes sweet tastes. Most oolongs are meant to handle multiple steeps.
