There is no health risk associated with Rooibos tea, but the quantities you describe is truly enormous. You will have to cut down on this massive fluid intake. My only concern is that your child remains so thirsty for a reason and therefore you will be well advised to have him evaluated by your doctor first. You can discuss definite ways of limiting the fluid intake at that point.
