Will any green tea work?

is there a certain type of green tea that has the antioxidants (or whatever they are called) or do I need a special kind...? i just so happen to have something called Uncle Lee's green tea in my cabinet, and I'm wondering if that would do.

They all should have it.

Green tea is particularly rich in health-promoting flavonoids (which account for 30% of the dry weight of a leaf), including catechins and their derivatives. The most abundant catechin in green tea is epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is thought to play a pivotal role in the green tea's anticancer and antioxidant effects. Catechins have been found to be more potent free radical scavengers than the well known antioxidants vitamins E and C.
