We believe our Zaatar will forever raise your expectations of what a zaatar mix should taste like!

This blend contains no salt while the regular blend contains less than 5% salt.  Yet, the lack of little salt unmasks the more tang and pungent flavor of the zaatar herb and sharper tart flavor of the sumac.

Tyme Foods' pure blend contains more than 30% genuine zaatar herb or Syrian Oregano with the scientific name Origanum syriacum (also considered the biblical hyssop) herb. The other ingredients are sumac, sesame seeds, and little sea salt (<5%).   It contains no other ingredients or fillers.  It is a gluten-free and filler-free zaatar mix.

This genuine zaatar mix is rare to find, even in the Middle East!  According to one zaatar and herb expert, Tyme Foods’s zaatar is one of very few widely available in North America.

The zaatar herb is grown from seeds of wild zaatar, also called Syrian Oregano, 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 oil content of zaatar herbs from other regions.)  The sumac and sesame are also grown in Southern Lebanon.  The sumac is tested to be at least 50% from lemony than common Turkish sumac.

This is a classic artisan made zaatar mixture as compared to low quality commercial and common grades, which often contain substitutes to mimic the flavor of authentic Syrian Oregano. Other brand for example, use fillers (often unknown!) to increase volume, citric acid or other artificial substitutes in place of the Sumac. Importantly, its rare to find mixes with genuine Syrian Oregano, and especially in generous portions.

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.
