OVERVIEW: 

Oregano is a popular warm and aromatic yet slightly bitter, subtly

sweet herb in the mint family. Good quality oregano has a pungency that numbs the tongue. Oregano is considered a staple herb in many cuisines around the world to season meats, vegetables, eggs, rice, pasta, and beans.

 

In general, oregano is classified as either Mediterranean or Mexican. Mediterranean oregano tends to be more savory and earthy and is often used with basil forming an unbeatable combination for dishes with strong flavors. Mexican oregano is stronger and more bitter and has notes of citrus and mild licorice and pairs well with chile peppers, cumin, and paprika.

 

Oregano is versatile and has a treasure of health benefits including having a high amount of vitamin K. It's loaded with detoxifying, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is a rich source of dietary fiber. It is commonly used in tea blends.
