This study was conducted to investigate the antioxidant amounts and properties of barley leaf tea and green tea at under various leaching conditions. The leaching temperatures and times of the distilled water were 50, 70 and 90 C for 1, 3 and 5 min, respectively. The levels of crude fat and ash in the barley leaf tea were higher than those in green tea. Brown color intensity and flavonoid absorbance increased with leaching temperature. The highest vitamin C levels and water-soluble phenol resulted at 90 C for 3 min. The DPPH radical scavenging activities of the barley leaf tea and of green tea were 11.06 and 50.56%, respectively, compared to 2.9% for L-ascorbic acid (150 ppm). The nitrite scavenging activities of barley leaf tea and green tea were 95.11 and 74.88%, respectively. The SOD-like activities of barley leaf tea, green tea, and L-ascorbic acid (150 ppm) were 12.99, 8.33, and 12.75%, respectively. The antioxidant effect of green tea was higher than that of barley leaf tea and lastly, the SOD-like activity of barley leaf tea was as high as that of green tea.
