Our Flowering Hyssop Thyme is a very special herb that's 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 it has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma. Use it in place of regular thyme with roasted chicken, grilled vegetables and tomato sauces.

Love the smell and it tastes great!
So much fresher than grocery store brands. Worth every penny.
Finally, I was able to make my own zaatar spice and have it come out just as I remembered from my childhood. The hyssop spice was difficult to find, but Burlap & Barrel had exactly what I needed. Will be re-ordering soon.
Love this too - the whole hyssop thing is just catching on - makes a nice difference.
A great substitute for fresh.
