Bergamot iced tea



Bergamot is also known under the name ‘’lucky fruit’’. It is a crossing between a lemon and a bitter orange. The pulp of this citrus fruit has a calming and uplifting effect. It is therefore not surprising that this Italian citrus fruit is often used in perfumes, but also in the well-known Earl Gray tea. The citrus fruit gets its name from the place where it comes from: the Italian city of Bergamo.
