Yes... Heating above 3 mins reduces the concentration of antioxidants cathecins. Ideally for one cup green tea... boil the water for two mins.....put off the gas....immediately put green tea leaves.....cover it with lid for two mins....and than strain it. Green tea without sugar, jaggery and honey can be consumed four to five times, if made in above manner.
