Don’t feel bad. I still don’t know how to pronounce most tea names.:)
Are we sure that the Starbucks employee knows how to pronouce this correctly?
Yes. Ricky’s phonetic spelling is correct.
Wikipedia says roy-bos. I can’t find a phonetic spelling anywhere online on any of the readily available online dictionaries.
Not all Starbucks employees know how to say it. It’s roy-bus, though a lot of people say roy-boss. Roy-boss is acceptable too.
the “bus” and “boss” difference could also be due to variations in speed of speech.
My best friend just calls it African Red Bush:)
