Savory (Latin name: Satureja Trouba) is a perennial shrub of the Lamiaceae family. It blooms from July to October. For its development, it prefers temperate climates for this and that is why it is found in Southern Europe, Africa, and Mediterranean areas. Aromatically it is associated with Oregano and Thyme. It is consumed as a decoction, used in cooking, and very often combined with honey as it gives it a special taste. It is harvested in the summer when the plant is in bloom and can be used both fresh and dried.
