Oregano from Taygetus
It comes as no surprise that this classic ground oregano is one of our most popular ingredients: During July and August, you’ll find people harvesting and drying oregano in every mountainous village of Greece. Sourced from small organic farms, our ground Oregano from Taygetus has the same flavor profile as the bouquets but in a more practical, pre-ground format. An absolute staple that shouldn’t miss even from the most minimal pantry!
People sometimes wonder why our selection includes three different types of oregano. Well, oregano is not just “one” herb, but rather a generic name used to define over 40 plant varieties around the world. And according to botanical scientists, Greece happens to be where some of the most praised varietals of oregano thrive.
Rich in essential oils, spicy and peppery, our Oregano from Taygetus is what we call all-purpose oregano here at Daphnis and Chloe. Store your bouquet in a pasta jar (or any airtight container), and crumble some florets on your salad right before serving. You will be transported to the Greek countryside, right away!
