Launched in 2016 in the Loire, FBKT is a young French tea & herbal tea brand that cleanses tea-time and revisits the world's classic teas in exclusive artisanal recipes inspired by French gastronomy with a high-end, inventive and modern spirit.
After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It is the first daily sip for billions of people and a real pleasure for the senses for millions of others. The pleasure of this drink comes from the perfect alchemy between plants, water and the care taken in its preparation.
The FBKT tea is a tea for everyone with an offbeat universe that takes the opposite of the classic tea-time and the « snobbish » image conveyed by the history of colonial counters in India.
It is a tastefully demanding urban tea for epicureans, lovers of good wines and gastronomy.
We wanted a tea brand on a human and modern scale, which combines artisanal know-how and creativity, without denying the rigour of French gastronomy.
Located near Roanne, on the foothills of the Massif Central, our company benefits from the magnificent setting of this thermal and wine-growing region.

Our recipes are designed with a creative spirit and tailor-made assembled in our Renaison workshop (near Roanne, 1 hour from Lyon).
As epicureans, we are guided by the pleasure of the senses, the delicacy and the search for a balance in the mouth worthy of the finest gourmet dishes.
The 250 references in our range of teas and infusions (including 70 certified organic by Ecocert) are made from ingredients rigorously selected for their taste and virtues.
To create a new recipe or select an original tea, we all meet, with our different personalities, around the table to taste, think and exchange. The blends are designed for their visual appeal, the balance of their flavours and tastes, the colour of the liqueur so that your drink acts harmoniously on each of your senses.
We can perform several dozen tests to find the perfect match!
