Rooibos & Vitamin K

Having recently had Deep Vein Thrombosis, I was prescribed Warfarin.
The doctor warned me against taking Vitamin K as found in Green Tea and deep green leafy vegetables, eg. Spinach, Broccoli etc.
Does Rooibos contain Vitamin K?

According to the website below it doesn't seem to be a significant source of vitamin K, if it has any at all.
