High quality, genuine Zaarar

We were so happy to find such a high quality zaatar. This is the real stuff. No toasted wheat, no thyme substitutes. Zaatar that our grandparents would be proud of!

Organic and Delicious

In the past I have brought za'atar back with me from the Middle East of Saudi friends in South America. I am so please to find a source, a delicious source, in the USA. This week I added it to homemade leek and potato soup because I was out of thyme and it was the best ever.

Brought my memory back to Dubai

I was looking to buy Zaatar and came across someone's recommendation to this company on a comment somewhere. Emailed customer service for some clarification and the reply was quick. Good first impression and very professional!
I received it safely in Toronto, CA, came along with a complimentary gift (such a nice gesture, I really appreciate it) and soon after used it on a flatbread and topping for Challah, it was DELICIOUS! It's as good as when I used to eat it on manakish when I lived in the Middle East. Yummy! Highly recommended.

Za'atar Pure Blend

Excellent Za'atar!


This Zaatar is fantastic. Fresh, flavorful -- we just love it!

Acquired taste??

Read the great reviews, got all revved up, & had to try it. Made the chicken breasts & the potatoes immediately upon delivery and... this is not for us. The taste is reminiscent of cumin with a dash of lemon salt; neither a fave. I'll find a middle eastern type to give it to; maybe they'll like it more. Sorry for the negative review but it is what it is.

Thank you much for sharing. We like to think it’s immediate (or not..) liking rather than gradual, especially our brand as we believe it is the best zaatar available. To judge the zaatar on its own, and per the traditional way of enjoying it, try dipping fresh bread in good olive oil then the zaatar. What do you think of it as dip food?
>> Doc replied about Za'atar Pure Blend by Tyme Foods: I tried... At your urging (& to be fair); a nice crusty french bread; dipped first in extra virgin imported olive oil then in Zaatar; and... bitter, not good. The bitterness is reminiscent of dried oregano. The same bread dipped in olive oil & fresh grated parmesan... delish. The quality of your product is not suspect; it appears first rate; but the flavor profile is too earthy; not for me; and frankly I see why it is uncommon here in America.
>> replied: Can’t argue you tried, with the nice crusty French bread and excellent extra virgin olive oil.. thanks again for taking the time. To us, the zaatar sprinkled on that fresh grated parmesan sounds delish also :)
Love It

First time I had Zaatar was on lamb chops at a restaurant. It was great. Then decided to order some and try it out as well. Leg of Lamb in the near future.



Wild Thyme

The best Lebanese zaatar.
I recommend it to all Zaatar lovers.

Great Za'atar

Overall the za'atar arrived fresh, aromatic, and flavorful. But use it quickly - or transfer to a more airtight container - as it doesn't stay fresh in the ziplock pouch for long. Would definitely order again.

Thank you for the feedback and we agree on storage.. this quality Zaatar is too valuable not to store as best as you can. The pouches we use are thick barrier material, airtight zippered, and FDA and USDA compliant. Yet, ideally air tight glass container away from sunlight is best.
Great product

I have eaten authentic za'atar from Jordan and this is such a precise duplicate. Excellent product.

Zaatar review

I like your product very much. The only zaatar I've had that's better is that i brought from Jordan when there. Only complaint: too expensive.

Love it!

I am new to Zaatar. I bought some at the Great Falls Farmers Market and I am in love with it! I put it on chicken and roasted vegetables and of course with olive oil and bread for dipping. I recently bought some as a gift - loved by all! Thank you for introducing me to this spice blend.

Za'atar Pure Blend by Tyme Foods

I can't give a fair review of this product at this point because it only arrived yesterday, so I've not yet had a chance to actually use it. However the company has already requested a product review twice so this is what they are getting!

Again, sorry for untimely and redundant notification. It was unintentional and a result of us experimenting with new with technical settings.
Still waiting for my order.

Although I am anxiously awaiting a taste of your zaatar spice. My order has still not arrived yet. It appears to be stuck in dither USPS postal facility in Jamaica NY, where it has been for several days.

2 star

Gave me allergic reaction

Again, we regret to hear that. Our ingredients are strictly the wild thyme/zaatar herb (which are in same mint family as orgeano-thyme-marjoram), sumac, and sesame seeds, sea salt (or the no salt option).
The Best!

This za'atar no salt is the best we have ever had, including from local Lebanese grocery. The wild thyme in it has much more flavor than regular thyme, and who needs salt? I want to use it freely, then salt to my taste.


Anyone tasting food seasoned with this Za'atar wants to know what was used and where they can get some also. Very pleased with purchase!'atar

Really good would have liked a bit more sumac. Very fresh. Excellent product.

Fresh and delicious!

I received my order super fast. The zaatar has the right amount of all the ingredients combined and you can tell it is fresh. The flavor is delicious and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Zaatar Pure Blend

Tasty! great on just about everything..eggs, stuffed peppers, dip,salads...enjoy!


Very, very fresh and aromatic. Tried it on sprinkled on Greek pita bread with olive oil. It was delicious.

Chicken Zaatar

Your Zaatar is wonderful. I used it mixed with a little flour to coat chicken breasts before browning/cooking. Then I used the fond to make a light gravy with shallots and garlic, then adding juice a lemon and a couple Ttbs of water for a little reduction. Yum.

The No Salt blend is excellent

Really nice mix w a good hit of wild thyme & sumac...delicious! I tend to add a bit more toasted sesame seeds because I love them, & it makes up for the salt (avoiding it for health reasons). A great find...

All products are very tasty and fresh

The Zaatar is excellent for all uses! I sprinkle the plain thyme and sumac in my hot tea.. It's so much easier than finding, cleaning and grinding local VA sumac, which we used to make a cold lemonade-like drink.


We love it. Our kids really enjoy it.

First time I tried this product

Absolutely excellent! I will order again.

Damn good!!

So delicious! Can't help but have it with everything i eat!

Exactly What you Want

Quickly shipped, and at a reasonable price. Love the modern world where you can get high quality Zaatar anywhere with Internet access!

It's about Thyme you give this a try

A delicious balance of savory, citrus, and nutty flavors are found in this zataar. Zataar flat bread is fantastic and makes a great snack or appetizer!

Not all zaatar is created equal.

This is one of the best zaatar blends I've tasted, and I've been eating zaatar since I was a kid. Very earthy and fresh taste. Make sure you pair it with a quality olive oil.

quality and flavorful zaatar

Enjoying this zaatar almost on everything. it is delicious. my kids love it as a dip and also sprinkle it on their sandwiches. I have sprinkle it on rice and soups and eggs. I love it with fresh baguette and olive oil. it has strong flavor because it is high quality with no fillings.

Top notch zaatar

I've eaten zaatar since I was a kid and this brand is exceptional. It taste fresh and bold with a strong taste of thyme. Well worth it! I find myself taking pitches of this zaatar and eating it alone. Highly recommended.


This is truly by far the best Zaatar I have purchased in the US. It was very delicious and had a wonderful tangy taste. I recommend sprinkling Zaatar over spaghetti. The kids loved it and ask for it every time they eat spaghetti. I am happy that I don't have to travel far to find good Zaatar. Thank you for bringing this pure and natural zaatar and making it accessible.

Fresh and flavorful!

So fresh and flavorful! It is the most delicious Zaatar I have ever tasted, and I have tried a lot of different Zaatar blends over the years! It is great with olive oil and naan bread and also makes for a great chicken rub! I will definitely keep a stock of this in my kitchen!

best Zaatar

really enjoying this Zaatar. makes other "zaatar" mixes taste and smell really bad and you can't believe they call those others the same "zaatar"
