Our flowering hyssop thyme is a very special herb, only grown in the Middle East, where it is the primary ingredient in the za'atar spice blend (sometimes spelled zaatar, za'tar or zatar), along with sumac and sesame seeds. It has an ancient history of culinary and medicinal usage, and has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma. Use it in place of regular thyme with roasted chicken, grilled vegetables, and tomato sauces.

As someone who adds thyme to almost everything I really have enjoyed using this one. It's more potent than your typical dried thyme and that's a plus for me!
Baked chicken with the hyssop thyme, white wine and a dash of demon juice. Delicious!
I was impressed at how pleasurable this thyme is to use. So much so, that I discarded the thyme in my cabinet, some of which came from my own herb garden.
Wonderful, as usual!
Floral and deep in flavor. My soups and stews are even better than before!
