Does the decaffeination process of green tea affect the antioxidant benefits?

There will be minimal loss of the antioxidant benefits for several reasons. We purchase a premium grade green tea for decaffeination, and we are currently using a CO2 decaffeination process which retains most of the polyphenols. Green Tea is more delicate than black tea. Therefore, we recommend using water that has been brought to a rolling boil; bring the water to the point of boiling, or 185 degrees.
