The subject is "tea" hence singular. the verb should singular. drop A,B.
E has not clear referent for they.
Between choices (C) and (D), one may face difficulty to choose one of them, but again the trick read the whole sentence as a one.
 

A) wrong subject agreement
B) wrong subject agreement
C) 'that' no clear reference, breaks the paralleism
D) By introducing the keyword THAT, it is now clear that we are talking about same components that are the same anti-oxidants that are found in tea. Also choose for parallelism '...compounds that...X... and that...Y...'
E) 'they' has no clear reference. 'they' could refer to either 'health benefits' or 'compounds'
Hence D
