Fortune Delight Review - Does This Herbal Tea Actually Work? Are unpleasant taste and minimal results deal breakers?

By Summer Banks on Aug 11, 2016
Fortune Delight Review

I paused before I hit the “publish” button on this one, because my conclusion was a bit of a shocker. We at DietSpotlight did one of our in-depth reviews on Fortune Delight, looking closely at the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and customer-service quality. Plus we read numerous user remarks and comments from around the web. At last, we compressed all of the information to give you the important facts and details.

EDITOR'S TIP:

What is Fortune Delight?

To begin with, Fortune Delight ingredients include camellia extract, antioxidants, jasmine extract, lalang grass root, chrysanthemum flower and natural juice. This tea is boasted as a concentrated herbal beverage that helps combat free radicals, enhance energy and alertness, and support weight management. It comes in flavors such as cinnamon, raspberry, peach, lemon or regular. You simply add one bag to eight ounces of warm water and it dissolves instantly. This product can be consumed in place of coffee, tea, energy drinks and sodas.

The company that makes Fortune Delight is Sunrider International. This brand offers several other herbal teas and supplements as well. You can easily purchase it through Amazon. It does not contain any artificial sweeteners or preservatives. Also, there are some helpful customer reviews and comments posted online, but read on…

Unpleasant Taste – “Can You Handle It?”

The first issue we have is with the unpleasant taste. “After browsing through numerous customer comments regarding Fortune Delight tea, it’s clear that some users do not like the actual flavor of this herbal diet beverage,” mentioned our Research Editor.

One customer stated, “Not good. Very artificially flavored. Tastes like fake peaches to me.”

On the other hand, a different person posted, “Not too bad. Been drinking this in the morning in place of my usual coffee.”

Another revealed, “Not sure about the weight-loss at this point. I like that it has antioxidants.”

Minimal Results – “Uh Oh”

There are some customer complaints about minimal results from Fortune Delight tea. In fact, one user reported, “Not seeing any fat loss from this herbal tea. I feel like this is all hype.”

But, a different person had this to say, “Just started drinking this yesterday. So far no Fortune Delight side effects, but not sure I will stick with it. Has an odd taste.”

“It’s like many other herbal teas you buy at the grocery store. Nothing really unique or amazing,” posted another.

According to our research, if there is some particular aspect of a diet tea or weight-loss product that is especially problematic (unpleasant taste, minimal results, side effects) the odds of long-term success are not very good. So, if Fortune Delight tea does in fact taste bad to a lot of people, this could in fact be a deal breaker.

The Science – “Find Any At All?”

We at DietSpotlight need to see some published research that backs up the diet product we’re reviewing. Sadly, we could not pinpoint any real science that supports Fortune Delight herbal tea and its weight-loss claims. On the other hand, this product does provide antioxidants, which may boost immune system health.

The Bottom Line – Does Fortune Delight Work?

Now the moment you’ve been waiting for. Here is our bottom line on Fortune Delight. First off, we like that this tea contains herbal ingredients and it does provide some antioxidant protection against free radicals. However, we have some doubts because it’s not backed by any solid science in regards to weight management. Furthermore, we’re concerned about the less-than-savory taste that some users have mentioned.

If you want to get started shedding excess pounds, then we suggest you go with a product that contains clinically tested ingredients, does not have an unpleasant taste and is supported by encouraging user testimonials.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. Its formula is a unique and potent blend of four ingredients, which have been shown in published clinical research to help improve fat loss and boost metabolism. We can’t find any negative user reviews, customer comments around the web indicate people are seeing excellent results and there’s no taste to worry about.

The makers of Leptigen are so certain of their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

Fortune Delight is an herbal tea from Sunrider International, a company that provides a number of herbal foods and beverages, supplements and skin care products. Sunrider is a multi-level marketing company that works through distributors, and the company website appears to be more interested in recruiting new representatives than it is in educating savvy consumers about their products. In fact, it is difficult to ascertain precisely what the purpose of Fortune Delight might be. At first it is touted as a powerful antioxidant and a healthy option to bottled waters and sodas. However, it also claims to be a natural tool for weight loss, with herbs in the mix that are supposed to eliminate fat from the system more efficiently through a gentle cleansing process. We will have to look more closely at the formula in Fortune Delight to see precisely what benefits this tea might offer. The product is sold through the Sunrider Internation website or through individual distributors. Some of these distributors provide websites so consumers can purchase their products online. We also found Fortune Delight available through a small number of online retailers. It appeared that these online retailers were generally the best source of information, since we were unable to find complete ingredient lists through the company website or online distributors. We would like to note that information like ingredients is essential for consumers to make educated decisions about the safety and effectiveness of their weight loss products. Companies that do not take the time to disclose this information online are generally not companies we recommend.

Ingredients

According to some online retailers selling Fortune Delight, the ingredients found in this herbal beverage include Camellia Extract, Chrysanthemum Flower Extract, Jasmine Extract, Lalang Grass Root Extract, Natural Juice Extract and less than 1% of natural flavors.

Product Features

While many of these substances are common ingredients for a soothing tea, we do not see anything in this mix to suggest appetite suppression or fat burning capabilities. These are two very important features in an effective weight loss supplement, and without them, we do not believe this formula has the necessary potency to assist the user in shedding excess pounds. At the time of this review, 10 servings of Fortune Delight tea costs about $13.90. The tea comes in a variety of flavors, including cinnamon, lemon, peach and raspberry. The company does offer a 14-day money back guarantee on all product purchases, which is also available through independent distributors of Sunrider.

Advantages

  • The product comes in a tea that can be enjoyed hot or cold.
  • The company does offer a money back guarantee on purchases.

Disadvantages

  • The Fortune Delight formula does not appear to include a proven appetite suppressant.
  • We did not find an effective fat burner on the formula list.
  • The company website did not provide a complete ingredient list.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a soothing herbal tea, Fortune Delight may be one to try. However, if weight loss is your primary goal, you will be better off with a proven supplement that includes a fat burner and appetite suppressant.

    Dont worry that you will lose weight by drinking Fortune Delight as this product’s ingredients are made of natural herbs and Fortune Delight will not make a person lose weight if you do not excess fats to lose. This is just a cleansing beverage which will at the same time nourish our body systems.

    They claim this is a cleanse for the kidneys. Do you have any information on that? I have kidney problems and would like to know if this tea would help, be bad or do neither for my kidneys. I drank this for several years and stopped about 2 years ago. I really like it but am afraid it might make the kidneys worse. Anyone know?

    This product can not harm you in any way. Sunrider has other products to support kidney health. This assists, as it keeps your body at the proper Ph level. It re-hydrates and provides electrolytes. There is no caffeine in this product, and is made by a master herbalist from China, who has an honorary degree in agriculture, is a biochemist and a pharmacologist.

    I feel it speeds up my metabolism and gives me energy without feeling jittery, and assists with digestion. I drink it with a straw because it can stain the teeth. It’s expensive but I’ve missed it for a while, so I think I’ll order some more.

    Taking Fortune Delight seems to bring on my period. This happens “every time”. Anyone have an explanation as to why this happens? I started Taking it on advise of a ND for my Endometriosis. The ND gave me a vague explanation that I found unsatisfactory. I am no longer seeing her.

    it is to my knowledge that menstruation is the body’s way of cleaning itself. due to the antioxidant and health promoting ingredients in Fortune Delight, it would make sense that it is encouraging your body to clean itself, thus causing your period when you take it. The cleaner your body is, the less it will have to clean itself and your period will lessen in length, flow, etc. hope this helps 🙂

    The answer as to any benefit of Fortune Delight is in its ingredients. Scientific knowledge in herbology or naturopathic medicine is mandatory to understand the therapeutic benefits of this drink. Answers provided so far are based on personal opinions not grounded in scientific evidence. This formula is effective according to clinical studies avaiable on the Internet IF YOU TAKE THE TIME and do not judge without consulting specialists in the field. STEFFAN CARDEN,N.D.,Ph.D.

    I agree. I wish that Sunrider would easily list and explain the benefits of the ingredients. I researched them myself before purchasing more. Most of them are anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, etc. and are really beneficial. I decided to purchase more after this research.

    I ran into a distributor at a holistic event and normally would not have considered this. I only tried it because I could add it to my water at work. After using only one box, I lost about 5 pounds. There was no rhyme or reason to it. I left some time in between and recently ordered some more. I have lost a total of 10 pounds from my highest a few months ago. Before I started taking this, my weight wouldn’t budge no matter how little I ate.

    Fortune Delight is not advertised as an appetite suppressant. It assists in weight loss because is cleanses the body of fats and toxins. The only way to lose weight is through a proper diet and exercise. Any appetite suppressant is a chemical and will only lead to diet failure.
