The words of Olivier Roellinger

With a taste a bit like thyme and pepper, it is most frequently found in the famous French spice blend “Herbs de Provence”.
It is especially good on meat, grilled vegetables, mixed beans, and lentils.
In the heart of the Languedoc heath, this magnificient wild summer savory is hand-picked.

Story

Like rosemary, the savory has for origin the scrublands of the Mediterranean coast. The savory likes stony hillsides, poor and sunny land.
The savory is appreciated as a condiment, with a taste close to thyme but more subtle. Savory is indeed more 'shy' than thyme. Sometimes also called by its regional name, “poivre d’âne”, savory is a variant of the word “satyr”, which certainly comes from the plant’s oft-mentionned aphrodisiac qualities.
