Zaatar Sesame-Free Blend - Gluten-Free with Genuine Zaatar Herb (Origanum Syriacum-Hyssop)

Regular price $20.99 Sale

This blend as same as Tyme Foods' Classic Blend but without sesame seeds.  You can toast and add your own sesame seeds or use it without as you prefer.

The sesame-free blend only contains the zaatar herb, the sumac, and little sea salt (about 2.5% of the weight)  It contains no other ingredients or fillers.  It always a gluten-free and filler-free Zaatar mix.

The mainstay Zaatar herb ingredient is sustainably  grown from seeds of wild Zaatar, also called Syrian Oregano or hyssop with scientfic nameof Origanum syriacum, and is 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 common Turkish sumac.

This is a classic hand-mixed Zaatar with genuine ingredients, 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.

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.

Great Quality!

I am so happy to have found a great quality, sesame free zaatar for my baby who is allergic to sesame seeds! High quality, great taste, we love it!

Awesome Zaatar

I’ve repeatedly bought zaatar from the NYC spice retailer and this blend is significantly better. The zaatar smells and tastes so much fresher, with stronger herbal tones. I purchased the sesame-free version for Passover and can’t wait to try the sesame zaatar blend.


My previous choice when I first bought Zaatar was from Amazon. It was thyme and sesame seeds with a little sumac and salt.
REAL Zaatar herb (Origanum Syriacum) is way better. I chose the sesame-free version, and I add sesame seeds sometimes but not always. EXCELLENT product. And I use a tiny fraction of the amount of the other brand. It makes yours a much better value. Thanks!

very satisfied

Great Flavor and quality

The Za atar is much more flavorful than what I can get at the grocery store. I use it daily. It adds so much to every dish I use it in from roasts to baked chicken. I use this Za atar mixed with the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the smoothest I have ever tasted, when I eat baguette bread and cheese. (wine included) It makes a great simple and light meal.

Zaatar Herb - Syrian Oregano

Great product...exactly what I was hoping for...fresh and fragrant...

Delicious Olive Oil!

Ordering and shipping were easy and quick and we love the delicious delicate taste of this extra virgin olive oil. Will definitely order again.

Loved it

Reminded me of the old days.

Over priced

The cheapest thing that you can buy in the middle east is zatar, lol. Ridiculously overpriced. Even when it’s on sale, 7 ounces for $11.99. No different than the merchant on Amazon that is selling a can of garbanzo beans for five dollars.
