- Unlike many other Earl Grey teas, this one is organic and flavored with rare and expensive oil of bergamot from Calabria, Italy.
- The word "limerance" means the state of being infatuated with another person.
- Natural oil of bergamot is very expensive and used widely in the perfume industry, and much of the Earl Grey tea in the U.S. is not flavored with actual oil of bergamot, but with an artificial and inexpensive substitute.
