New Fav

I have a new favorite drink at Starbucks.

Drumroll please...

(that was the cymbals)

Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte

Starbucks describes it as follows:
"Full leaf African rooibos tea (naturally caffeine free), also known as red tea, paired with Tahitian vanilla and cinnamon. Sweetened with classic syrup and topped with steamed milk and velvety foam."

(Does anyone know how to say rooibos? "Roy-boce?" "Roo-bus?" "Roo-eee-boce?" When I don't know how to pronounce a word I need to say, I have this tendency to quickly stutter the first syllable about five times and then drop off quickly without really ever finishing the word. This is usually my attempt to get the person I'm speaking to to say it for me. It oftentimes works, and has worked so far when I've ordered this drink. For some reason, though, even after the barista says it, I can't store it in my memory. If someone could send me a pronunciation guide for it, that would be great. I'll carry a copy of it in my purse. :) )'s only 160 calories for a nonfat grande, which is what I usually get. Pretty fantastic. I recommend you go try it tonight. ;)
