Doesn’t make any huge difference because it is same drink, just little colder. Only difference in iced and hot green tea is, iced tea contains water. Green tea has maximum benefits when it is served hot because it enhances the metabolism and fat-burning process. While making green tea, just don’t boil water too much and pour the water over a tea bag and let it steep for 2 minutes before drinking. If you still want to go for the iced one, then freeze this drink instead of adding ice cubes.

Use green tea in first 6 months of buying because the tea bags may lose their antioxidants, if we don’t use the fresh ones.
5. Does flavored green teas have same green tea benefits?
