Oregano is a robust herb that is both complex and strongly aromatic. Mediterranean Oregano is closely related to Marjoram and is similar in taste. Oregano is an important culinary herb and its leaves provide its signature flavor. Unlike many herbs, the dried version of oregano tends to be more flavorful than fresh oregano. Mediterranean Oregano can vary in intensity depending on where it is grown, but a good quality oregano may be strong enough to practically give a numbing sensation to the tongue. Mediterranean Oregano tends to be a bit sweeter and more anisey. The aroma may remind you of your favorite pizza shop! Being that I used to own a business that specialized in pizza, this herb has sentimental significance for me.
