If seeking to consume green tea for, for example, flavonoid content, are bottled teas that you can buy sufficient(or maybe the one you can get in the same section as the orange juice and in the same type of container) , or is it important to buy the bags?
Reason being I really don't like hot beverages, coffee and I don't really like tea hot or cold; but I can probably force myself to drink it cold.

I have read that bottled green tea does not have anywhere near the same flavonoid content as the stuff you brew yourself.

Brew your own then chill it. There are many teas out there, you may find one you like. White tea has a milder taste, just make sure you follow the brewing directions carefully, you only steep it for a minute or two. Red tea (Rooibos) is supposed to have more flavinoids than green tea. You can steep red tea forever without it getting bitter. Most teas will become bitter if brewed too long.

If you like mint, you can brew a mint bag together with a green one. You can find many combinations of flavors. If you drink juice, try mixing half and half.

I brew my own. I have an infuser I use with the green tea blossoms.

Green tea has been shown to increase the efficacy of meds -- ABX and such.

Also, green tea helps fight superbugs. so it can kill lyme disease!

You literally brew your own with raw leaves/blossoms? I was comparing bag tea to bottled....where can you buy the raw leaves?
