"If you have high blood pressure you should not drink green tea, the ginseng will counter your blood pressure medicine, and won't help you medically."
According to the article from SparkPeople that is not true.
"Researchers have discovered green tea is loaded with antioxidants, specifically polyphenols. This type helps to fight against free radicals. Free radical molecules cause “bad” cholesterol to form plaque on the inside walls of the body’s arteries. Polyphenols are said to stop this, as well as to relax blood vessels. Therefore, green tea is also effective in reducing the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure."
