Oregano Leaves Greek Cut
Mexican oregano contains a far higher volatile oil content (primarily of thymol, carvacrol, and menthol). This results in a far more potent oregano. It’s less peppery and less pungent than common oregano, but with a more intense flavor of thyme and hints of mint. The lemony notes present in other oreganos are also diminished here. However, if you need a powerful oregano flavor for sauces and soups then Mexican is the way to go.
