Wingreens Farms Oregano Leaves Review – Is It A Good Taste Enhancer?

Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves can be added to a pizza, pasta sauce or a bowl of veggies. But do the Wingreens Farms Oregano flakes have the potential to elevate a homemade dish?

We hear ‘oregano’ and our minds instantly think of a cheesy slice of pizza. This flavorful herb instantly uplifts the overall taste and you really can’t go back to relishing pizzas without a generous sprinkle. 

Oregano is used in several Mexican and Mediterranean dishes and more commonly as a staple herb in pizza and pasta sauces. Like most herbs, oregano is available as fresh leaves as well as dried herbs. Considering how overpowering the fresh leaves of oregano can get, most people prefer the dried variant. 

Wingreens Farms added the dried herbs range to their list of products which include basil, thyme, rosemary, and oregano. All you need to know is covered in Team Mishry’s Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves review. Is this dried oregano aromatic? Does it bring the herby flavors? Do we recommend this dried herb?

1. Ingredients 

This product contains whole oregano leaves in the dried form. Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves are devoid of any artificial colors, flavoring, or preservatives. 

2. Form Factor

Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves are dried oregano leaves. Typically with dried herbs, a powdered or flaky form is the biggest concern. However, the dried oregano by Wingreens Farms was in the whole form. We noticed some leaves even had stems on them. Overall, this dried herb had a coarse texture.

3. Taste

Oregano is characterized by a warm and aromatic taste that has some bitter notes too. Even a small quantity of oregano uplifts simple dishes by adding pungent and earthy flavors. 

Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves had a subtle flavor of oregano. The classic flavors that oregano is characterized by were missing.

4. Aroma

Dried herbs always have a stronger aroma when compared to the same fresh herb. This is why dried herbs are used in relatively smaller quantities during cooking/seasoning.

Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves have a subdued aroma. We expected an earthy aroma to cover our test kitchen as we opened the pack. However, what we sensed was a barely-there aroma.

Our Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves review lasted for over five days, and we tried it with multiple dishes. We sprinkled these dried oregano leaves on some pasta, cooked sauteed veggies with it, and since no oregano taste test is complete without a pizza, we sprinkled some over a homemade pizza too! For the pizza base, we used the Wingreens Farms pizza dough.

Minimal ingredients and vegetables were used to get the real taste of Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves, which in turn helped us produce a fair, well-rounded review. 

The key observation from these experiments in our test kitchen led us to the conclusion that Wingreens Farms Oregano leaves are more aromatic than flavorful. The pungent, earthy, acidic flavors one typically expects from dried oregano were missing. Towards the very end of the bite, we could taste a mild hint of some oregano.
