Greek Herb Trio, $33

Travel to Greece with this amazing trio of herbs. Each herb is very special and harvests by hand in small farms of Greece - in areas where they thrive and become heirlooms of the region because they rarely make it outside of the area.


Greek Oregano

People sometimes wonder why our selection includes three different types of oregano. Well, oregano is not just “one” herb, but rather a generic name used to define over 40 plant varieties around the world. And according to botanical scientists, Greece happens to be where some of the most praised varietals of oregano thrive.

Rich in essential oils, spicy and peppery, our Oregano from Taygetus is what Daphnis and Chloe call all-purpose oregano.  Store your bouquet in a pasta jar (or any airtight container), and crumble some florets on your salad right before serving. You will be transported to the Greek countryside, right away!

 

Wild Thyme Flowers

 

Thymus Capitatus, a variety that loves Greece’s rocky coastlines, grows into a woody purple shrub. It prospers in specific areas of the Mediterranean and is a hard find even at well-informed spice shops. Our harvesters trim the blossoms one by one, following a laborious process that allows preserving the herb’s aroma for longer. The most advanced tool to ever touch these flowers is a pair of scissors. 

Crumble with your palms or fingers before use. You’ll need 2-3 blossoms per portion. Floral and tingling, this thyme is best friends with lemon, garlic, and olive oil. A combination capable of taking plain roasted potatoes to another level. 

Use for brining chicken, marinating lamb, or pickling vegetables. You can add a couple of thyme blossoms in your herbal infusions: they pair well with peppermint, and they have digestive, antiseptic, and antioxidant properties.

About Daphnis and Chloe 

Established in 2013, in a small workshop right under the Acropolis Hill of Athens. The founder dreamed to see the limited batch terroir herbs of Greece in the kitchens of home cooks worldwide. 

Daphnis and Chloe comes from a small country, with a peculiar geographical distribution and variable microclimates where Mediterranean herbs thrive. Studied by scientists and traded by farmers since the beginning of history, these little known ingredients have great culinary value. However, they rarely cross the borders of their places of origin. 

Daphnis and Chloe set to travel the country for superior herbs and inspire farmers to believe in forgotten, heirloom varieties. They source from small organic farms across Greece, and know their growers by their first name. Curating their plants’ journey from sourcing to shipping, they make sure they’ll maintain their magical properties all the way to your kitchen!
