Green tea is made using the stem dry method and the delicate process might be the reason it’s so rich in minerals and antioxidants. It also contains caffeine, an alkaloid that helps stimulate your nervous system; amino acids that help increase mental focus and fluorine, a mineral that helps in strengthening tooth enamel.

However hot tea might have more amount of antioxidants as compared to iced tea as iced tea uses fewer bags and is watered down. But cold-brewed tea has more or less amount of antioxidants.
