Bergamot, a fragrant citrus fruit mostly grown in Italy, is considered to be a hybrid of lemon and sour orange. The oil from the rind (and sometimes the peel) is used to flavor Earl Grey and Lady Grey teas. These bonbons are made with an infusion of herbal, caffeine-free Rooibos Bergamot tea from South Africa, resulting in an elegant, well-rounded, and flavorful milk chocolate.
The tea is imported by MEM TEA, a local company known for the high quality and variety of its teas. Rooibos (pronounced ROY-boss), also called redbush or red tea, is packed with antioxidants and has been shown to have numerous health benefits. Tasting notes for this tea include vanilla, candied lemon, and orange peel.
