I saw the extract on vendor's site, and pretty sure he doesn't want any publicity. Anyone have any info or experience?

Here's the list of actives

Yes, but I have a feeling there is more to it.

on the link it's said to be good for depression...possible maoi?

And the alkaloids are listed if that gives anyone a hint

Many members of this family have potential... I have found many to be allies of mine.. Just recently the Entheogen Review mentioned the use of Henbit as a means of getting off, although I personally believe the subject was ignorant to the power of placebo... Its a very common herb (bergamot) and is native in my state, like many of its cousins.. They are nice herbs to have around for those of us who are in tune with these allies.

I'd be interested to know if this is indeed active.

Where I work they sell it in bulk :grin:

No, the mint relative native to the United States called Bergamot (Monarda didyma) is not used to make Earl Grey tea. Earl Grey consists of two ingredients, black tea and Oil of Bergamot. Oil of Bergamot is made from the Bergamot Orange, Citrus aurantium subsp. bergamia:

Monarda didyma's leaves are used to make an herbal tea similarly to how you'd make any other mint tea, like catnip or spearmint:

I have seen several brands of Earl Grey green tea. It might be fun to experiment with Oil of Bergamot in other types of tea as well.
