Bergamot Herb - Bergamot Tea

Bergamot, commonly known as Bee Balm is a native of Eastern North America and has many uses both edible and medicinal.Bergamot plants have at least 3 different color flowers and types, purple, pink and red. The red variety of the Bergamot plant is said to have been used by early colonists as tea after the Boston Tea Party. The Oswaga Tribe showed the early American settlers who were protesting tax imposed on imported tea, how to make Oswaga Tea. The dried leaves and flowers are both used to make a tea reminiscent of Earl Grey whose flavoring is actually derived from a different plant "Bergamot Orange"(Citrus bergamia) which is actually a citrus fruit. The scents and flavours of these two plants are very similar.
