    Yes, I've heard that it has antibiotic-type qualities.  It is also supposed to help if you have eaten something that gives you bad breath.  It is cleansing and also supposedly speeds up your metabolism for weight loss.

    Tea, and other herbal brews are better when taken hot. The hot water extracts the constituents more effectively and is soothing to drink.

    The only exception is when you have drawn the tea with hot water then chill it before drinking. It contains the actives but makes for a cool refreshing drink.

    Tea compounds are best released onto the water after it is cooked or poured into the hot water. Its benefits are same if it is taken fresh, either cold or hot.

    Bot types are good. Even if you make cold extract from green tea, it is still very potent tonic. It just takes more time to get the cold water solve the useful theines inside the green tea.

    Some compounds in the green tea are also fat soluble, so leaving the tea satchels in  milk will also have very pleasing effect on your general awareness.

    I prefer mine hot as I've never really liked iced tea. However, from what I've read it is beneficial to you in either form so have it your way. There seem to be more and more benefits of green tea every time I hear about it. I'm thrilled that I like it since it's so good for me.

    I think it's fine hot or cold, as long as you brew it hot first. The heat helps steep the antioxidants out of the leaves.
