Fortunes International Teas was given to me as a gift! The Blueberry Vanilla tea is the greatest and in my case, had great medicinal purposes when I had a hacking cough that would not end! Blueberry Vanilla (my favorite) quieted my cough almost immediately!
Where can we buy this ?

1st Steep of the Day after lunch
After a Cube Steak and Indian Rice with Raisins Lunch.
I wanted a Fruity Cup to close the lunch hour.
I went with this Fortunes Cranberry Orange.
This is a great Black Ceylon Tea, Bold and Robust.
The added flavorings of Cranberry and Orange Explode.
Great Drink after the Indian spiced rice dish.
Seems like a new standard might have been created.
Because I was so low on Black and Black Flavored Teas and didn’t have a lot of cash on me today…I thought I would go to a local gift shop and see what they had. They this flavor/brand and because I haven’t tried anything from them I thought I would give it a whirl. The packaging is neat. It’s a faux canvas looking bag with a draw string and as the flavor clearly marked in color in the center of the packaging. Inside there is 10 individually wrapped bags. The Cranberry and Orange Aroma isn’t very strong but certainly present when you first open the bag and packaging. Once you steep it it loses some of the aroma but it’s still pleasant to the nose. It ‘brews’ quickly and is a medium-strength black flavored tea for a bagged tea.
As far as overall taste of this tea – it’s a good ‘even steven’ or a good ‘standby’ and it’s certainly a good bagged tea if you are on the go or in a hurry! What I like best is that I can find it locally AND it’s nice EYE CANDY…I guess you could say I have a thing for the packaging…it’s nice to ‘look at’ and love the little canvas bag!
By making this purchase and drinking this cup today it put a smile on my face!
One of my good friends in California sent me this, once upon a time, and I asked her to get me more after I ran out. This is my third box (they’re small, so they go fast) and I’m almost out again.
This is kind of a special occasion tea for me… if I know it’s going to be a rough day, I’ll grab this to bring to work to make the day a little better. I really like it—great flavour!
