Authentic Greek Oregano is the most pungent and flavorful of the oreganos. Very hard to find, yet sought for its culinary and medicinal potency.
Holds flavor in cooking. Tea is used for indigestion and coughs, with the oil used for toothaches. Dark green leaves and white flowers exude that bold, unmistakable aroma. Bees and beneficial insects LOVE it. Easy, low-growing.
In Greece bridal couples are crowned with it as a symbol of happiness.
As an Italian it pains me to admit this Greek oregano is the absolute strongest, delicious, aromatic oregano I have ever tasted. The best thing about it for me, is on Christmas I can unbury this from the snow and it is still green and ready to make my lasagna sauce. I can not boast enough about this oregano. It has ruined me for every other oregano. Nothing else comes close. Also the only oregano to maintain full flavor on drying. The store kind will taste like dirt after you've tried True Greek Oregano.
