Monarda didyma is the botanical Latin name of the bee balm plant and bergamot comes from this plant. The bergamot orange is used to flavor Earl Gray tea ( I just learned this googling just now). Wikipedia has a great description of what bergamot is under the botanical Latin name if you put it into their search line.
