Do you need to boil tea to get the most antioxidants out of it?

<p>Pour hot water into the cup, swish, discard.  I use a tea ball or a strainer.  Some teas you DON'T boil the water, just heat it, others have to be rolling boil.  For flavour purposes some are 10 minute steeps, some are very brief.  Dunno much about them there aunty oxidants though.</p>

<p>Ahhh tea.  Had a Silver Needle earlier, now off to get my cortisone shot and am promising myself either a Darjeeling/Poobong or a Green Tea Chai for being a good boy on my return.  Ahhh the joys of vacation.</p>
