Tea alone can not be a cure for pressure problems, but regular use of tea( 1-3 cups a day) will help improve the general condition and well-being of the person. Daily moderate consumption of natural large-leaf tea leads to the normalization of pressure in general. It is the systematic presence of tea in the diet, rather than one-time tricks, that can influence pressure.

With increased pressure

The drink is not able to lower the high blood pressure that is observed with hypertension, therefore at the moment of increase it can not be drunk.

However, regular use of green tea will help to normalize the pressure, since the high content of flavonoids, which is famous for the drink, favorably affects the heart and blood vessels.

From the above we can conclude: green tea raises the pressure and normalizes it with a correct and systematic reception, but does not lower it.
