Our values

A HIGH-QUALITY HANDMADE TEA FROM FRANCE

Magasin de vente de thé et épicerie fine

FBKT is a family-run business and one of the few tea & herbal teas manufacturing workshops in France. Our offices and production workshop are located in the Loire region.

Our brand employs 6 people full-time to manage all of our activities in-house: purchase of raw materials and plants, writing recipes, production, commercial department, after sales service, communication, quality, etc. This is a joint venture - we make decisions together, in our offices.

We have a machine that enables us to produce our own pyramid PLA tea sachets (corn starch, biodegradable, suitable for compost).

All our products are assembled by hand by the team, including the tea boxes in our bistro range (assembly in the workshop, assembly and filling of boxes by hand) or our Advent calendars.

We have also chosen to operate within a close network and be highly selective when it comes to all of our commercial partners (suppliers, client retailers, etc.). This allows us to continue our traditional approach and maintain the quality of our products and services.

SMALL TEAM, PREMIUM-QUALITY TEA

CREATION OF ARTISANAL TEA RECIPES

Our team of epicureans is guided by sensory pleasures, delicious flavours and our quest to strike the right balance to complement the finest gourmet dishes.

Our tea and herbal teas recipes are written with creative flair and prepared using traditional methods in our workshop.

To create a new recipe or select an original tea, we all meet with our different personalities around the table to taste, reflect and discuss…

The blends are created for their visual appeal, balance of flavours and tastes, and the colour of the liqueur so that your drink strikes a harmonious chord which each of your senses.

We will repeat dozens of tests to find the perfect match and offer you the perfect handmade tea !
