Does anyone get headaches with Redbush/Rooibos tea?


#9

Yes most odd.

I’m actually ok now with Rooibos … drink cups and cups of it now, but then my entire condition has improved immensely.

Try my favourite, Spiced Ginger (with Liquorice) :slight_smile:

Doesn’t it still have 10% of the caffeine? ie some caffeine?

Decaf <> caffeine free

Redbush is caffeine free and so are all herbal teas, presumably. I would avoid decaf if it brings on symptoms.

Also be careful of confirmation bias?


#12

It sure does. I always thought it was caffeine free but my Bruv who lives on very strict diet (not a MAVer) corrected this illusion long ago. Helen

I still drink about 5 cups a day of decaf tea but notice within 30 mins my nose pulsates and i feel dizzy somewhat…i may cut it out altogether…i LOVE tea as well😣

Yes, cut it out completely for time being and move to herbal and/or caffeine-free tea.

Roibos/Redbush is a great alternative as is the Spiced Ginger above.

This is just an example from Amazon (click it, but be aware it’s an affiliate link as are most such images on the site in order to support the cost of running it). In the UK you can get Rooibos from most supermarkets. I’m not so sure about the US.

Thanks james

More options in UK especially, both of these I consume every day, they are excellent. Vanilla one is really nice on its own, standard Redbush really nice with food, especially breakfast, yum!:

I ordered some of these from amazon. Going to take 2-3 weeks. WHy is all the good stuff in UK? arrgh.


#20

You have the patience of a saint! :wink: that’s slow! :turtle:

Yeah, weird. Complain to Amazon US.

The US equivalents that are as close as possible are the Tick Tock brand, No guarantee that’s as good a recipe though…

THx James. Cancelled the other one and ordered the tick tock. I’ll let you guys know how it is.


#22

Good plan, yes please let me know!


#23

the local stores in the US have great selection of teas. I have not have any caffeine for like 3 months. I drink chamomille, lavender, mint, ginger, and I found recently Oatly, and I love it, now I can put a little “milk” in my tea. https://us.oatly.com/


#24

I work hard on these affiliate links. It’s often nightmare to get a link that has an equivalent on each side of the pond!


#29

you are doing a great job and we love you for that! :slight_smile:
