Q.

rooibos

I have tried giving my 6-month old baby rooibos tea but she just pulls her face and will not drink it. Could I add sugar and NAN to make it taste nicer for her?

I will definitely NOT advise adding sugar, but you may add ordinary cows milk or NAN. At this age the additional fluid should only be for thirst and clear water is probably the best.
