Handpicked from an organic farm in a mountainous village of the Peloponnese, this mountainous oregano grows surrounded by walnut and chestnut trees. These gorgeous bouquets are one of the most elaborate products Daphnis and Chloe prepare. It takes the most skilled workers an entire hour to put together just 15 of these bouquets. Why might you wonder? To maintain the crispy flavor of minute-ground herbs.

Want to be transported to the Greek countryside? This bouquet of Oregano takes you there! It's rich in essential oils, spicy and peppery. Store your bouquet in an airtight container and crumble some florets on your salad/meat/fish right before serving.
How to use

From a small workshop under the Acropolis Hill of Athens, focused on bringing agricultural qualities from all over Greece to the hands of many. Evangelia and her team at Dapnhis & Chloe scour through every nook and corner of Greece's mainland and islands. They partner with really small organic farmers and cultivators, who produce the most incredible indigenous herbs. Their efforts have resulted in farmers believing in the forgotten, heirloom varieties and couldn't be happier to see these efforts cross borders outside of Greece.
