In brief: ECGC

Green tea contains a polyphenol called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (ecgc) which was shown in rats to decrease systolic blood pressure.
A study by y.C. Yang indicated that consistent use of green tea can lower risk of developing high blood pressure. However, the caffeine in green tea may cause a blood pressure increase in some individuals.
