A great choice of tea that has a lot of healthy benefits. I love taking it before bed time, for me to sleep better. Rooibos has variety of antioxidant like Aspalathin which help balance blood sugar. It is also caffeine free which is good for those people suffering from insomia. This can also cure or ease headache that why it is commonly known as relaxation mineral and will protect you against headache that may lead to migraine.

I think I may have done my life-time quota of rooibos. These days, it'll take me 3 days of drinking it at work (several times a day at work), before I get pretty bad headaches and I'm not one to usually get headaches.

I'm not sure if it's because I leave the tea leaves in and it getting pretty strong?

However, I find it hard to do moderation with rooibos, so I stay clear of it these days.

I can never understand the purpose of people saying: "It never happened to me and I drink/eat/do that all the time". Just because something didn't happen to you personally, like a nut allergy for example, doesn't help the person it does happen to. To me it's super invalidating. Those comments usually suggest the person is confused and something else must be going on- their reasoning being that it didn't happen to them personally. Some people eat peanuts all the time and never have a problem.

There are more than one person on just this thread saying Rooibos tea gives them headaches. Googling doesn't prove anything either as there are tons and tons of blogs, etc saying it's good for many things. Also many places selling it saying it's good for many things. It doesn't mean that there aren't people who DO get negative reactions from it.

I've just read so many times, "I consume x food/drink every day and never had a problem." I'm happy for you, but maybe someone who's not you does have a problem with (fill in the blank). There are things also like oxalates, salicylates, histamine, mold, etc. ,that can make people feel unwell. Maybe this stuff is susceptible to mold. Or there may be issues about the way it's processed. Plus no food is a superfood. Foods that are exclusive to certain parts of the world get pushed on the rest of the world as super healthy, but the fine print shows they are only marginally different from any other fruit, veg, tea, etc.
