H is for … Headache Halo (Ode to Tea)
I just have to start by saying I am actually obsessed with this Rooibos blend from DavidsTea. It’s probably my favorite rooibos blend they have created. It’s perfect for this nights when I have a mild tension headache or just when I need a nice cup to help me fall asleep. Tonight is the second of the two, I knew when I had to drink I blend that started with H this would be the perfect would to save for the end of the night!!

Flavors: Lavender, Mint, Rooibos

Yuck. Tastes like a standard red rooibos with the added “bonus” of mint (although I’ll admit that nana mint is preferable to peppermint, for me). Can’t taste the lavender, which was truly the only reason I decided to finally try it. Will save the rest for a headache.

My partner decided we needed to place a DavidsTea order because we were out of Caribbean Crush, and it’s his favorite to cold brew. This came as a sample with the order (yay for samples from DT again!). This isn’t something I would have ordered, because of the rooibos. But, I had a slight headache developing so decided to try it. Added a bit of honey.
No rooibos taste at all luckily. It tastes like a pretty generic mint/sleepytime tea, but it does seem to be helping my headache.


Caribbean Crush is a favorite of mine too! My bf isn’t into tea though. He’ll sometimes take a sip and say, “WATER!” to annoy me, but I can occasionally persuade him to drink a latte, which he’ll call, “slightly flavored milk”. It’s been five years of this, so I doubt he’ll ever convert, unfortunately.


Lol to ‘slightly flavored milk.’ My boyfriend enjoys tea, but 100% relies on me to prepare a cup for him (which I actually enjoy).


Oh yeah, I love making tea for other people and picking something I think they’ll enjoy. I look forward to when we can safely have guests again!


oh good, Davids has samples again!

Another new tea – not part of the Chai collection, but something slipped onto the tea wall today during the Autumn/Winter seasonal switchover, meaning it’ll be around for at least the next six months…

I’m generally pretty skeptical of “Wellness Blends” but this is meant for headaches and that’s something that I do think there are herbal remedies for that are fairly legit. Of course, I’m not saying this tea is some miracle cure for headaches – I’d never say that, it’s just not something I believe. However, I get headaches a lot – generally from looking at the light from my laptop for extended periods of time, and also from subconsciously clenching my teeth. So, over the last few months I have been drinking this tea whenever I’ve had a headache and I do find it helps me – doesn’t really get rid of the headache, but definitely tempers it a lot. Ironically, given the name, I actually find I get the same relief that I get from using the Peppermint Halo roller from Sage (and I am a FREQUENT user of Sage’s Peppermint Halo). It’s helpful for me – and something I might add to my sick tea stash, along with Cold 911 and Honey Drop. Of course, that’s just a personal experience and I know it’s different for everyone – I think, for me, it’s the combo of mint and willowbark that helps me out, but I’m not totally sure.

As for the taste…?

Well, I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. I find the taste of the nana mint in the blend really intense/strong and it has that weird licorice-y sweetness that really coats my whole mouth and lingers for an excessively long time. It reminds me A LOT of Throat Rescue in terms of taste, though I do actually like this better than Throat Rescue. This is licorice from the nana mint, but Throat Rescue has that quality on top of ACTUALLY having licorice root in it. I think it helps that I find Headache Halow also had a bit of a creaminess to it, and a hint of lavender to break up that intense nana mint and make it a bit smoother tasting to me. It’s very herbaceous/minty overall though…

I’m curious to see if people like it – I know I was surprised by it, though I like in conceptually a lot. This is one of those very, very rare cases where I might actually buy a tea for function over flavour – and I really don’t say that often, or lightly.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.


I also clench and need to get a mouthguard made because every time I get a headache, it hurts in the same spot that I have a brain cyst and then I panic a little. I was intrigued by this until I read licorice sweetness.

I once clenched my teeth so hard that I cracked a tooth – it’s a problem. Now, to be fair, I have shit teeth and have had dental issues for years, but even still… It was a frightening moment.

I think I need this tea. I had severe headaches recently and oh, I hate it.
