Regular price $14.99 Sale

This blend contains no salt as compared to the classic blend which contains less than 2.5% sea 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' Za'atar blends contain 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 (<2.5% of weight).   It contains no other ingredients or fillers.  It is always a gluten-free and filler-free Zaatar mix.

The mainstay Zaatar herb ingredient is grown from seeds of wild Zaatar, also called Syrian Oregano or biblical hyssop (scientific name: Orginaum syriacum), found on the 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 widely available sumac.

This is a classic hand-mixed Za'atar 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 fresh 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.

Our Za'atar's are hand-mixed using ingredients from most recent season harvests. Flavors remain strong for about two years, if stored in airtight container in dry place away from heat or sunlight.
