Zaatar Spice Blend with Genuine Syrian Oregano -

Za'atar Classic Blend with Genuine Syrian Oregano - Gluten-Free 7 OZ Pouch

Regular price $14.99 Sale

Tyme Foods' classic blend contains more than 30% genuine Zaatar herb or Syrian Oregano with the scientific name Origanum syriacum (also considered the biblical hyssop) herb. It is a gluten-free and free of any fillers, added oils, or substitutes. The Zaatar herb mainstay ingredient is grown from seeds of Syrian Oregano/Wild Zaatar found on the mountainous hills of Southern Lebanon and is known to produce very flavorful herb because of its high essential oil content (about 1 gram per ounce, and 4 to 40 times multiple the essential oil content of Zaatar herbs from other regions.)  The Sumac is also grown in Southern Lebanon at the base of Mount Hermon. The Sumac is pure with no salts or oils added, and is about 50% more lemony than common brands that are mostly from Turkey.

This is a classic artisan made Zaatar mixture with three mainstay ingredients only, as compared to low quality commercial and common grades available on the market, which often contain substitutes to mimic the flavor of authentic Syrian Oregano native to the Middle East. Other brand use fillers (often unknown!) 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.

Heavy on oregano

I like it but find it a bit heavy on the oregano flavor.


Love the Za’atar classic spice blend & the hyssop tea as well. Both are so very fresh and fragrant.
Cooked the most delicious fava beans with the spice blend & threw in a used hyssop tea bag. So good. I feel blessed to have found your site while researching the health benefits of za’atar.. Thank you.

Full and bright Mediterranean scent.
