I am a tea drinker and Herb grower
I have been guilty of misleading people about the tea Earl grey because of one of the ingredients in the tea is Bergamont

The bergamont in the tea is not beebalm / monarda
The bergamont in the tea is an orange , and the oil from the rind is what is used in the tea.

This is my small way to try to correct the misinformation I have been part of .
This seems to be a very popular misconception that I have read over and over in blogs and other places on the net.

Who knew there was a bergamont orange Shrug!
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

That is interesting as I had always heard of the Monarda story.
