i'll make some earl gray tea
recipe
and recite
bergamont

Etymology

Italian bergamotto, modification of Turkish bey armudu; literally, the Bey's pear.
[edit] Production

Production mostly is limited to the Ionian coastal region of the province of Calabria in Italy, to such an extent that it is a symbol of the entire region. Most of the bergamot comes from a short stretch of land there where the temperature is favourable. It is also cultivated in Argentina, Brazil and the US state of Georgia, but the quality of the obtained essence is not comparable with the essence produced from the bergamots of Reggio Calabria due to the argillite, limestone and alluvial deposits found there.[citation needed] High quality production is also found on the Southern coast of Turkey, mainly around the town of Antalya.
[edit] Uses
[edit] In food

An essence extracted from the aromatic skin of this sour fruit is used to flavour Earl Grey and Lady Grey teas, and confectionery. An Italian food manufacturer, Caffé Sicilia in Noto, Syracuse, Sicily, produces a commercial marmalade using the fruit as its principal ingredient[5][6]. It is also popular in Turkey, Greece and Cyprus as a preserve, made with bergamot peel boiled in sugar syrup.
[edit] As a fragrance

Bergamot peel is used in perfumery for its ability to combine with an array of scents to form a bouquet of aromas which complement each other.



you have no idea
what it feels like

that's cool
seventeen oranges and
stuck in smiling.
seventeen smiles and smirks.

throwing up on the side of the
trail. in the setting sun,
