Profile

The drinkers of Earl Grey tea are very familiar with the distinct aroma and taste of bergamot oil, because it is this oil that gives the tea its distinct floral accent. Bergamot is a plant that produces this citrus fruit, also known as Citrus Bergamia. This fruit is a hybrid between sour oranges and lemons. It is a pear-shaped fruit which comes from the same family as orange in the Rutaceae family. The color of Bergamot fruit is yellow or green similar to a lime. The extracts have been used to scent a lot of things which includes food, perfumes, and cosmetics.

Bergamot was most widely cultivated in Italy. Even the name “Bergamot” originates from the Italian city of Bergamo, from where it originally originates. It’s derived from the Italian word ‘bergamotto’. The height of citrus bergamia tree is 12 meters and it is covered in long, green leaves. It produces white flowers. Moreover, the taste of the bergamot fruit is too bitter to eat but, the oil obtained from it is very popular among the tea drinkers. It is because of the floral scent and the famous tea leaves feature bergamot.

Bergamot fruit is also produced in Argentina, Brazil, Algeria, the Ivory Coast, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, and South-East Asia where it has its roots. Though it is a tropical plant, it grows well in Europe.

The oil is extracted from the peel of the fruit by means of cold pressing. Many experts support the idea that cold pressing helps to preserve more active compounds in essential oils that may be destroyed by the high heat of steam distillation. The aroma of the Bergamot Essential oil is quite similar to that of orange; however, it has underlying floral accents to it that make it more complex. Due to its pungent aroma, Bergamot is a popular ingredient used by perfume manufacturers. It has citric base notes and overall quite an amazing scent. It is commonly greenish golden in color and has a thin consistency.
