As per quality production standards Yellow Tea, can be viewed as a cooked version of green tea, where an additional sweating or heaping stage is involved which usually range from 24 to 30 hours. However utmost care has to be taken in observing the leaves during this heaping stage as it is very much susceptible to spoilage where mold will set in the lot if not processed at the right time on the cooked leaves. An entire batch will need to be dumped in case of spoilage if the tea master has not been attentive to check the batch's doneness at regular intervals. Mainly this check is done by the nose where an experienced tea master detects the batch just by the smell.
The leaves will have formed a very bright yellowish tint to it right after the sweating stage and will be further hand rolled for 3 to 4 rounds of ball rolling where the moisture is gradually removed from the leaves until its upto 5% after which its take through a final sundrying stage to be packed.

- Bring water to an initial bubble boil on a stove and immediately stop (approx 75 Celcius / 165 Fahrenheit) and allow it to cool ( approx 70 Celcius / 155 Fahrenheit)
- In a brewing vessel take about 3 grams of teaneer Oolong leaves and spread it on the bottom.
