Which type of tea is good for headaches?

A particular tea: May or may not help your headache. If you have a tension headache, sipping warm chamomile tea may be calming. If combined w deep breathing exercises all the better. But there are a number of possible reasons for headaches and a number of types of headaches. The best way to formulate a plan to prevent or to abort headaches is to be evaluated by your family physician or by a neurologist.

Maybe: Depending on the reason for headache, it may. Fluids usually help but tea can be dehydrating.

Caffeine withdrawl: Its usually the opposite! caffeine withdrawl (not taking tea or coffee, after regular use) is more likely to cause these symptoms.
