Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)

What is Bergamot?

Bergamot is native to Southeast Asia and the tree is the result of cross-breeding the lemon tree and the orange tree, which account for its pear-like shape and yellow color. It is a cold-pressed essential oil produced by cells inside the rind of a bergamot orange fruit. Bergamot has been used for medicinal and perfumery for centuries. It is responsible for giving Earl Grey Tea its unique flavor.
