Black Teas are the most processed among the varieties. Freshly plucked leaves are laid out to dry, and are then rolled in order to lightly bruise the leaves, encouraging them to release their juices. The leaf color changes from green to a coppery red, giving black tea its distinctive liquor. The oxidation is then stopped, and the leaves are heat fired and dried.
