Fast and complete fixing of green leaves is very important. If the temperature is too low, the leaves turn red; but if the temperature is too high, the leaves scorch. The water content of fixed leaves is usually controlled at 60% in China. Long fixing times and overdrying are unfavorable for the following rolling step. Some top quality green teas in China are made by hand. The fixing temperature is between 100°–200°C. Machine fixing temperatures are about 220°–300°C. After fixing, the next step in processing green tea is rolling.
