Brief Answer:
No worries, green tea cannot alter significantly clotting profile

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

Green tea of course is a herbal supplement. However, before surgery, a clotting panel is done to check if your blood clots appropriately. If this has been done already and it is fine, you need not be afraid as green tea on its own will not cause any negative impacts on your clotting profile.

No need to worry so with green tea in take with respect to the surgery.

Thanks and kind regards as I wish you the best of health.
