    Focus really helps me do just that when I’ve worked all day and have a paper to write for school. Helps with mental clarity.

    Focus is my favorite way to start every day!

    Can’t tell you how delighted I am to have found Focus again. I thought my world had tilted off its axis forevermore when Tazo discontinued their version. But Blend Bee has come to my rescue and saved every day — with their perfect blend of delicious ingredients. Thank you from the bottom of my cup!

    Focus is flavorful and a great tea in the morning – or any time!

    Very Good! The tea is very close to the Tazo Focus, but lacking in richness and depth, leaving you with a fruity aftertaste verses the complex cacao aftertaste of the Tazo – which is the reason for the four stars verses five.

    Such a great tea! I had to go off morning coffee and this tea is delicious as well as satisfying. Give it a try!

    This tea and this company are giving me LIFE! I was so sad when Tazo (stupidly) discontinued Focus but delighted to find BlendBee. They combine quality ingredients with an attention to detail, creativity and humor. Love love love love.

    Ah, Focus! I had to stop coffee in the morning, and now I start every day with Focus and a shot of milk. Super smooth, super satusfying and delicious. Thanks Jamah!

    I discovered the focus blend while searching for the discontinued Tazo tea by the same name. This tea “focuses” on a vibrant orange aroma rather than the strong chocolate mint of Tazo’s focus blend, and the result is a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up or late-night boost. I also recommend brewing a cup a blend of focus and chocolate maté (3:1 ratio) if you want to bring out the chocolate tones in this tea.

    I was on vacation and had some tazo focus tea and absolutely feel in love with it! I arrived home and tried to find Focus only to find in discontinued…
    Stumbled across this site in my search and am so pleased with this Focus blend! So pleased I am ordering my second shipment!
    I love this tea! Thank you!

    I’m really loving this blend! I was a religious drinker of Tazo’s Focus, and was so sad when they discontinued it. This blend is a bit more orange-y than the original, but I still enjoy it. Thanks for making this blend!

    I was very pleasantly surprised when I found this Tazo Focus replica. I had relied on Tazo’s Focus tea to study during graduate school, stay focused during work, and to help me get things done efficiently at home. It seemed more effective for me than coffee at keeping me (shockingly) focused without jitteriness or GI effects that often come along with coffee. I really appreciate that this blend was made! after receiving this blend in the mail, I compared the two teas side by side. (Although Tazo’s Focus it was discontinued over a year ago, I stocked up and still have some of their tea bags left.) Blendbee’s version was lighter in color, more orange-y in flavor and less chocolate-ly. The flavor of Tazo’s tea was stronger and bolder than Blendbee’s. As far as the level of “focus” each tea gave me, Tazo’s tea did a better job at that, but Blendbee’s version wasn’t far off. There are small differences in these teas, but I’m incredibly thankful that there is an option out there for Focus lovers. Blendbee’s tea tastes very good.

      I am so happy you’re enjoying your Focus blend! If you would like for me to make it richer with less orange and more chocolate tones, I’m happy to do that for you! That’s why our tagline is “Your Tea. Your Way.” we can customize even our premade blends to your liking! – Jamah

    I was so sad when Tazo discontinued Focus so yay for this!
    It’s does taste a lot like the Tazo, maybe better! I think it’s a little sweeter. It’s wonderful.

    This loose tea is very close to the Tazo Focus tea, it’s slightly heavy on the orange but that’s OK.

    I just wrote out a long review and it disappeared so I’ll make this one short.

    I’m always adding extras to my tea and a few days ago I added a bag of Chocolate mate tea (I was trying to up the caffeine) to the carafe I was brewing the focus tea in and it came out PERFECT.

    I also was sad when Tazo discontinued their tea, and have searched the stores in vain for something similar to replace it. I came to your site looking to try to see if you could reproduce it, and you already had done it for another customer! I am absolutely thrilled, thank you so much!

    I had never tried the Tazo Focus blend, so I met this tea for the first time a week or two ago. The flavor is subtly smoky, with a citrus taste. Very smooth! This is a good tea to wake up with, or for anytime a cup is wanted. very nice.

    I love the Tazo Focus tea and was so sad when it was discontinued. I asked Jamah if she could try to duplicate it from one of my last few teabags and she was more than willing to give it a try. I am beyond impressed with her efforts. She even ordered some special ingredients and then sent me a sample to try. She did a fantastic job of matching the flavor of the Tazo tea. I like her blend at least as much as the original. Give it a try – you won’t be disappointed! I also can’t say enough about Jamah’s customer service. It was a true pleasure finding someone who is willing to go the extra mile to satisfy a customer. I meant it when I told her she is the best! I’ve also discovered several of her tea blends which I like as much as the Focus tea. This is one happy tea drinker!
