Decaf Ceylon, Assam Melody and Ceylon Sonata blend together in an attempt to duplicate a refreshing southern style plain black unsweet tea. No frills to this tea. If you wish to have a southern style sweet tea add a packet of Adagio Rock Crystals (or sugar) or any sweetener you prefer. The definition of Paragon is perfection. Perfection is quenching your thirst with a freshly steeped, clean, high quality black tea poured over ice on a hot summer day.
