The short answer is: no, green tea will not clean anything out of your system.

The longer answer is: there is almost certainly nothing in your body you need to "cleanse," and there are no "toxins" in your body that any diet or supplement will get rid of.

Medically speaking, there are a few specific cases where some form of toxin removal is necessary. In those rare cases, a doctor will identify the toxin and use real medical technology to remove it: a stomach pump for alcohol poisoning, supervised medical chelation for lead or mercury poisoning, iodine for radiation poisoning, insulin for dangerous levels of blood glucose, antivenin for snakebite, etc.

Unless you've had some sort of specific toxic exposure, it is probably not the case that your body has built up toxins beyond what your liver and kidneys can deal with on a daily basis. Even if there were, you would have to know what toxin was building up to know how to get rid of it; there is no magic bullet that will attack anything that might possibly be bad for you. If the "toxin" is lead, it will need a different treatment than if the "toxin" is asbestos, or PCBs, or fungus.

A good rule of thumb is: if someone tells you something will help you by removing "toxins," ask them which specific substances are causing the problem, and ask them if there has been a peer-reviewed study measuring the levels of these specific substances in the body before and after treatment. If they can't answer either question, save your time and money.
