Rooibos tea- Yay or Nay

My family Dr. highly recommended drinking rooibos tea as a natural inflammatory and a host of of other benefits. I am reading up on it as I sip my first cup and it also says it is an immune booster. And warns that it may interfere with chemo treatment.

I know remicade and imuran aren't chemo treatments, but they are immune suppressants- so maybe I shouldn't drink this stuff?

What do you think?

Hmmm lots of things are immune boosters but I'd imagine you'd need large quantities to interfere. Having a tea or two a day should be safe in my opinion.
