The camellia sinensis leaves will have to be gathered from their sources and then left out to oxidize. All leaves will be brought into a climate controlled room where they can dry out.

Different oolong tea leaves will be left in different rooms for fermentation. This is done because of how different types of oolong teas will work with different fermentation levels.
