Mexican Oregano is a wonderful herb cultivated in Mexico
Mexican farmers for so many generations created a plate full of spices herbs and chilli that marry together so well
Big shocker though, Mexican Oregano is not Oregano, it is related a few evolved generations before, as with so many spices over the years a mixture of names and understandings have created names of spices that refer to their flavour and not plant genus types
Mexican Oregano is actually Lippia graveolens, a flowering plant similar to oregano, tomato tomarto, what is a name with food, when it smells and tastes sweet citrus herby flavour then to us its Mexican Oregano
Mexican Oregano is a wonderful flavour infused with other cuisines but when married up with our Mexican Chillies the flavours stand up to the wonderful strength of Ancho, Pasilla, Chipotle to name a few

Where I live oregano is a main herb but this is a great addition to my pantry
Good quality herb. Very fragrant and worked well in my Mexican dishes.
Brilliant & authentic
This is honestly the best oregano I've ever found. Full of flavour and heavy citrus notes. Can't recommend enough
I had heard a lot about using this instead of european Oregano from Guy Fieri on DDD, the difference is surprising and fairly subtle ish it has that lovely Oregano smell but is sweeter and a lovely citrus tang, like all Traditional Stews Casseroles etc I leave them overnight to allow the flavour to grow, my first Con Carne with it was one of my best ever add a good 70%+ chocolate and it just worked its magic better than ever before. Highly advise you give it a whirl if you love your Mexican Chillis
Wow! This herb is so fresh tasting and packs a massive hit when cooking meals from scratch.
The best dried oregano you can buy in this country!
Everything arrived in beautiful condition and the scent of the box was obvious even before we'd opened our parcel! Really fresh, everything is great quality. So grateful that you deliver to Finland as this is not easy for me to get here! Thank you!
