Red Cappuccino in South Africa: Sounds like "Roy Boss"; Tastes like Delicious
Red Cappuccino? South Africa's most common tea drink is red tea. It really is red and it is naturally decaffeinated. A coffee shop chain called Mugg & Bean serves red tea as a cappuccino, with foamed milk and honey, topped with cinnamon powder. The drink is called Rooibos, pronounced "Roy Boss". It's delicious. Although there are lots of Mugg & Bean shops across South Africa (particularly in Capetown), this cup was served at the Mugg & Bean store in Franschhoek in the Winelands. Having a cup of red cappuccino is one of those wonderful discoveries tripped over while traveling.
