Driftwood is well known for lowering pH slowly, through the release of tannins. So are Indian Almond Leaves, which are sworn by, by many betta breeders. The tannins are the same thing found in tea, so they may make your water brownish (!! don't try putting tea in the tank though! That should be obvious, haha.)

I had the same problem when I moved recently, where the water shot up to 8.4. I bought some betta water conditioner, followed the instructions, and it was back down to 7.2 after a few days.
