Za'atar Pure Blend with Real Wild Thyme (Hyssop)

Regular price $14.99 Sale

Tyme Foods' pure blend contains 30% zaatar (hyssop) herb (also referred to as wild thyme, Syrian or Lebanese oregano) 30% Sumac, and 30% roasted sesame seeds, and 10% unrefined Mediterranean sea salt.  It is a gluten free zaatar mix. The zaatar herb is grown from seeds of wild zaatar found on the mountainous hills of Southern Lebanon and is known to produce very flavorful zaatar herb because of its high essential oil content (about 1 gram per ounce, and 4 to 40 times multiple the oil content of zaatar herbs from other regions.)  The sumac and sesame are also grown in Southern Lebanon.

This is a classic artisan made zaatar mixture as compared to low quality commercial and common grades, which often contain substitutes to the wild thyme/hyssop which is native to the Middle East, and contain wheat and other (often unknown!) fillings to increase volume, citric acid or other artificial substitutes in place of the Sumac.

We offer this zaatar in a relatively generous eight ounce portion because we are confident you will enjoy it beyond a seasoning or spice.  Try it as a dip food by dunking fresh bread or vegetable into olive oil then the zaatar - sprinkle it on salads, soups, and sandwiches - stir it into a yogurt - knead it into dough and pastry - and experiment with its many culinary possibilities.

Currently shipping Zaatar that was made (ground and mixed) in September of 2018. Best enjoyed before September 2020. Store in airtight container in dry place away from heat or sunlight.

It is one of the best zaatar I had in United States. It remind me of my grandmother's.

Best Zaatar

I have been buying this za'atar for some time now, and it remains my favorite by far. I eat lots of it, especially with good olive oil (such as that available from Eat Zaatar), and non-gluten bread. One of the many great things about this za'atar is that it is gluten free, whereas many other brands have wheat. Even if wheat is not an issue for you, you'll find this to be an exceptionally good product. The customer service is great too.

It is hard to find quality Za'atar, really appreciate this company

Great price and service. Already have done several recipes that were pining for Za'atar

Too much sumac for me

This may be an authentic zaatar, but I found the taste more sour than I enjoy.

Fantastic spices, fantastic company

After having fantastic Lebanese food in London, I wanted to experience the sensation at home. After researching a few spice suppliers I chose this one.
Fantastic! The spices are fresh and fragrant departing phenomenal flavors to my foods. The company themselves are easy to work with with. I highly recommend them if you want delicious, and authentic taste.
