Story of Tea

There are four main types of tea -- green, black, oolong and white. They all look and taste differently.  The most common misperception is that the different types of tea come from different tea plants. The fact is they are are all derived from the Camellia sinensis evergreen plant. The difference comes from how the plant is processed. Common processing terms are withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying or firing.

Ventura Tea offer all types of teas from Indonesia, such as:

Black Tea (some people call it as Red Tea)

It is the most popular tea in the world. Black tea.  Black tea goes through full fermentation in which the leaf color darkens to give it its black color.   In fact, it counts for more than 75% of all tea production on earth.  The tea is sorted accordingly to size, namely leaf grade," and broken grade.. We provide both the orthodox and the CTC such as, BOP, BOPF, PF and BT among others

Oolong Tea

Oolong is a semi-fermented tea  and goes through a similar process that black tea goes through.  It is made from large leaves to produce a full-bodied taste.  The oxidation period for oolong is half that of black tea.  Oolong is known for its floral aftertaste and soothing aroma. 

Green Tea

The process for making green tea is the shortest.  Because of its antioxidant ingredients, green tea is thought to offer health benefits in many areas.  Green tea is the most popular tea in Asia.

White Tea

White tea is the unfermented, uncured tea leaf.  Because of its minimal processing, White tea contains more nutrients than either black tea or green tea, making it the mightiest of the teas, the ultimate Health Tea!
