Daphnis & Chloe organize their harvest and use organic farming best practices for protecting biodiversity. That is how the producer of this oregano variety will keep the aromas and medicinal properties of the plant intact for a long period.
Oregano (from the ancient Greek ὀρίγανον, which means “joy of the mountains”) is a plant that grows on sunny grounds, up to 1,000 meters above the sea level.
Its flavor is both floral and slightly bitter. It contains notes of lemon and a spicy tip that is a bit peppery but sweet. It is this very characteristic taste—barely minty—and its smell, immediately reminding the scrubland and the sunny days.

Taygetos wild oregano in a bunch is an excellent source of vitamin K, iron, calcium, and magnesium. It is anti-spasmodic and, in general, excellent for balancing digestion.
Oregano can season many foods such as the fresh cheese varieties of goat and ewes—like our galomizithra. It can be sprinkled on a nice Greek salad with tomatoes and feta, or on the slices of bread grilled with garlic.
You can also season a pasta dish with a drizzle of olive oil, fresh cheese, and lemon zest.
You can also put on the grills while roasting fish or any other meat type. It is also used for marinades or even in an infusion.
In a nutshell, oregano is an excellent ally in cooking and will be associated with all your dishes very quickly!
