I’ve read that you can seal black tea leaves into a container that has been scented with oil of bergamot. That sounded great, as most Earl Grey isn’t strong enough for my taste. However, after ordering Oil of Bergamot online, the bottle says “for external use only”. I’ve asked at a couple of tea stores if there is special culinary oil of bergamot, and they say no. But I’m reluctant to experiment with something potentially poisonous.
Has anyone ever made their own Earl Grey (or used bergamot oil to “refresh” commercial Earl Grey)?
Thanks in advance!
