Za'atar Pure Blend with Real Wild Thyme (Hyssop) 7 OZ Pouch

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 seven 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 August of 2019. Best enjoyed before August 2021. Store in airtight container in dry place away from heat or sunlight.

I love this Zatar!

I love this particular brand and blend of Zatar and eat it almost everyday in everything. A wonderful product. Thank you!

Extra Flavor

I would recommend this zaatar to anyone. It is as good as the zaatar that I have from Jordan and has an extra tang on my tongue that the Jordanian mix does not.

New taste twist

I was looking for a new wings recipe and I found one I liked that finished the wings with a dusting of za'atar. I had no idea what it was so I looked it up. I decided to try making some when I came across your website and was excited to see that you used wild thyme which is very difficult to get. It was delicious on the wings and can't wait to try it in soups, meat dishes, and salads where I would normally use more traditional American herbs. It's an easy way to get out of the food rut and try something new. I highly recommend.

Authentic spice

The best Zaatar I’ve had without question! So fresh and vibrant in flavor. I have really been enjoying it with traditional flat breads. Try it. Thank me later! You will not be disappointed. The ground sumac is just as wonderful.


This za'taar is just delicious. It is earthy and tart in just the right way!
