This is the best Zaatar I have ever had, and I tried several brands. I especially like it because it does not have sesame seeds.
I bought a bag of hyssop, sold ostensibly as a tea, although I bought it in order to make my own zaatar from scratch. The herb has an unusual peppery flavor, but that does not get at the complexity of the taste. The zaatar blend I made with this hyssop as the foundational herb was excellent. I prepared potato wedges, dressing them with olive oil and my zaatar mix, for some thirty people. These trays of potatoes -- real soul food -- were gone in no time! I also received a complementary sample pack of premixed zaatar which is excellent. My next culinary plan is to try dressing a loaf of bread with it. Instead of garlic bread, I'll make zaatar bread. Highly recommended!
We use this product for everything, we flavor food with it, we cook with it, and we eat it as a dip just as it is. It is the most flavorful olive oil we have found, and we are picky about olive oil. It is fresh and delicious. It cooks cleanly and there is absolutely no bitter aftertaste, like you get from mass produced, cheap products. Zaatar Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the "secret ingredient" in many favorite dishes at our home.
If you haven't tried this before this is has a complex Thyme flavor which makes the traditional poultry turkey blend seem old and tired. I purchased Sumac too, just out of curiosity, and am using it instead of citrus in savory dishes. No one will guess the use of this "fruit!" Plus the package arrived almost before I checked my email confirmation. Great choice of company.
I’ve eaten homemade zaatar my entire life. I had to go on a low salt diet and this product taste just like my mom’s.
I'm relatively new to Za'atar after dining with friends at a famous Brooklyn middle eastern restaurant. I love being able to enjoy it now at home. Wonderful on my goat cheese sandwiches!!
I received your wonderful product and checked the aroma--perfect! I have a Greek friend who gave me some nice pita, so I fired up the broiler, applied olive oil and a generous portion of your zaatar, toasted for a couple of minutes and tasted (with some nice yogurt). Wonderful. Very much as I remember my Grandmother's zaatar. And, while I still have a decent amount remaining, I am using it regularly and enjoying it thoroughly!
Zaatar seasoning and olive oil bring out the flavors and add harmonious tastes, that enhance my foods. They are taking my meals to the next level of flavor.
Za'atar adds a tasty kick to recipes that call for dried thyme and other herbs. It's not so hot as to trigger acid reflux--at least in me.
Wild, fresh taste. Other types of thyme are stale compared to this stuff. I was not even a fan of thyme until I tried this. I use it regularly on anything... chicken, eggs, potatoes. A little goes along ways.
The zaatar is amazing. One of the best quality zaatar ever. The thyme burst in aroma abd flavor. Unlike many other zaatar brands this is not very sour and not overly salty. I lovd it.
I really enjoyed this Za'atar. I do prefer the unsalted kind.
Thank you for making this available.
The za'atar has a strong and tangy flavor, which I really like. I can tell the spices are very fresh. Can give a flavor boost to so many foods. But my favorite way to eat it is with flatbread and olive oil. Second favorite is mixed with yogurt.
We tried it at home on baked chicken and loved it. Will be using it at our Sader meal at. Church this Wednesday evening.
i had gotten another zaatar at a local shop and it was way too salty. this is perfect, good quantity, fast shipping. i will purchase again.
I have really enjoyed this spice blend very much. I love it roasted chicken! Will be buying again.
Nice tangy mix of herbs. Taste exactly like the mix I've bought at Sams Syrian bakery in Fall River, Ma.
I was introduced to za'atar about eight months ago and now I don't know how I'd get along without it! I love it in rice, quinoa, in legume soups and stews, on vegetables and on scrambled eggs. I share my za'atar with friends to introduce them to this wonderful spice. It's got a distinct flavor but never overpowers the dish. I love it!
this is the best tasting Zaatar I ever had since I left Lebanon 50 years ago.
The unfiltered Extra Virgin olive oil is Great.
I really like your za'atar! First it surprised me how tangy the flavor is, but I enjoyed the taste. I mixed some in plain yogurt, and I loved it! Now I look forward to eating a lot more yogurt since it is much better because of the za'atar. (I should eat more yogurt for health reasons but wasn't crazy about it). I look forward to trying the za'atar with bread, and experimenting with other foods. Thanks!
