Greek Herb Gift Sets
+ $ shipping surcharge
Grown in Greece, not the grocery store.
These herb sets are hand picked and sourced from farms all over Greece—the perfect gift for the cook who’s constantly adding curios to her spice cabinet and has an appreciation for high-quality ingredients. Once you cook with these powerfully fragrant and flavorful Mediterranean varietals of common herbs like oregano and mint, you’ll never go back to the supermarket stuff. The secret's that the herbs are kept whole flower as much as possible, so when you're ready to crush them, their powerful essential oils are released.
Choose from a set of Greek oregano taygetus, thyme flowers, sage leaves, and bay leaves—the backbone of Greek cooking; or a set of peppermint, Pennyroyal mint, sage leaves, and fennel seeds, which make for fantastic teas and infusions, as well as cooking helpers.
