Five Times

Recall that I drink my yerba maté at one-fifth normal strength.

I noticed the package has a text box proclaiming "Antioxidant Power: When brewed as directed, this tea provides an ORAC value of 10,000 umolTE/240 m, which is  five times stronger than a typical cup of green tea brewed with a tea bag."

Is the five coincidence?  Or are the antioxidant-containing compounds what makes the drink seem "strong enough" for my taste?
