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?

Cofftea

Yes. Ricky’s phonetic spelling is correct.

fcmonroe

Wikipedia says roy-bos. I can’t find a phonetic spelling anywhere online on any of the readily available online dictionaries.

Frustrating!

Ricky

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.

Cofftea

the “bus” and “boss” difference could also be due to variations in speed of speech.

My best friend just calls it African Red Bush:)
