Anyone know if you loose some of the benefits drinking it cold verses hot? I read an article that was meant to be about green tea (couldn't find one on RRL) and said that when made ahead of time, as it sits, the antioxidants break down. Also that you lose some of the benefits when it is cold as the antioxidants also die off under room temp.
Anyone know if that is just green tea or if it would apply to all teas. The article said "Black tea" was fine to make ahead of time and chilled but herbals such as green tea should be made fresh each cup and drank hot for maximum benefits. I loved the idea of making a gallon or half gallon at least at a time and drinking it cold because I am not due till summer so hot tea isn't gonna be too appetizing in the heat. Just curious if anyone knew anything about this. I am sure though cold or hot, drinking it at all beats not. I may still do chilled during the day, maybe hot before bed but will do the labor infusion hot.
Oh well just curious.
