Zaatar Leaf Tea - Hyssop Tea

Regular price $17.95 Sale

Perfect for tea making as well as flavorful sprinkle on salads and other foods.  This is same wild thyme ingredient in our zaatar blends, but not ground, and hand/well sifted.  This is true wild thyme (biblical hyssop) and grown from seeds of actual wild zaatar found on the mountains of southern Lebanon and offers strong and sharp flavor due to its high essential thymol oil content.

Versitile Zaatar

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!
