Oregano is a common species of Origanum, a genus of the mint family and is used for the flavor of its leaves, which can be more flavourful when dried than fresh. Oregano is strongly aromatic with a slightly bitter, pungent flavour. This pungent flavour is composed of earthy/musty, green, hay, and minty notes. The herb imparts a slightly astringent mouthfeel. Its flavour and aroma are similar to marjoram and thyme but is stronger than both.
