From the Arabic word for thyme, our za'atar is mixed with lemony sumac, nutty sesame, marjoram, thyme, and oregano. The sumac imparts a zesty lemon-like tang, while the thyme adds an earthy layer. These flavors are perfectly balanced by the nuttiness of toasted sesame seeds and the subtle seasoning from salt. The specific composition and proportions can vary, with regional variants adding or substituting ingredients like oregano, marjoram, or cumin. It results in a complex, yet harmonious blend that offers an explosion of flavors on your palate.
Using Za'atar is a joy, a sensory delight that begins the moment you open the packet. The aromatic punch is invigorating, an invitation to an exciting culinary journey. Rub it on meats or fish before roasting or grilling, sprinkle it on flatbreads, mix it with olive oil for a simple yet divine dip, or add it to your salads and soups for an extra depth of flavor. Za'atar is not just a spice blend; it's a gateway to a new and vibrant world of culinary exploration.

Za'atar Israeli Blend. It taste's great because no added salt! Hooray! I have ordered Za'atar from 2 other places, both had too much salt added to their blend. Thanks, Spice House!
Enjoying these wonderful spices. Love the Zaatar!
Just as you said, this Za’atar is the perfect topping for hummus. It has a wonderful aroma and a very exotic look about it. It is a happy addition to my spice locker👍
Thought I'd give TSH version a try, as I've enjoyed all their products purchased over the years. However, their Za'atar is a HUGE disappointment for me. This blend is far too fine and bland. I will continue to purchase from authentic Arabic markets instead, shame
I love that I can just click "add to cart" and get spices like Za'atar delivered right to my kitchen. Thanks!!
