The Bergamot Orange (Citrus bergamia) is a highly nutritious citrus fruit, dried naturally and ground into powder you can use in your daily smoothie. Believed to be an ancient hybrid of two other species of orange, Bergamot is tart in taste, and bright yellow like lemon. The majority (not all) of bergamot oranges are cultivated on the sun-drenched slopes of the hills and mountains of the Calabria region of southern Italy, and the fruit is named after the Calabrian town Bergamo.
Earl Grey tea is a tea blend which has been flavoured with oil of bergamot. The rind's fragrant oil is added to black tea to give Earl Grey its unique taste.
Recent medical studies suggest ingested Citrus Bergamia may have a beneficial effect lowering cholesterol.
