Will drinking green tea reduce a fever?

Probably Not: Green tea certainly has anti-oxidant properties, but most do not have the anti-inflammatory properties that reduce fevers. (however, the liquids will help if you have a fever.)

I love green tea but does it work as well drinking it cold as it does when you drink it hot?

Probably but...: This is an interesting question. If you are talking about bottled cold green tea with lots of sugar bought at a store it may not have a lot of the beneficial antioxidants.
