We're out of Wild Za'atar for now. In the meantime, you can make your own za'atar blend at home! Grind together 3 parts Flowering Hyssop Thyme, 2 parts Cured Sumac, and 1 part sesame seeds, then mix in a sprinkle of salt and a glug of olive oil.
Our Wild Za'atar is sourced from a women's cooperative in Palestine and is a blend of wild za'atar herbs and sumac, sesame seeds and local olive oil. It's incredibly fragrant and complex, the best za'atar we've ever tasted. It's excellent on everything from fried eggs to toast to roasted vegetables or chicken.

I have been rationing the last bit from my jar waiting for a restock. Other blends really don't measure up.
Simply the best!
Delicious..on grilled burgers..scrambled eggs..hummus with a drizzle of olive oil...a squeeze of lemon and a dusting of Burlap and Barrel Za'atar. The best I have tried.
I sprinkled it on Ottolenghi's basic hummus and took it from fabulous to sublime!
In terms of flavor aroma and texture this za'atar is unbelievably good. It can transform simple ingredients with just a pinch. So, so worth it!
Read about the company. Heard a cool radio interview about it. I was all in. Bought it and other spices. On a Saturday night, while watching The Merry Wives of Windsor on YouTube, I ate scrambled eggs made with the Wild Za'atar. It was the best experience I had during this pandemic lockdown. I never had spices pop and linger in my mouth. A true pleasure. The first jar is nearly done. The second, I am going to savor. You guys are amazing and thank you for making this strange time much easier.
My friend actually went out and purchased a middle eastern cookbook because she loved the Za’atar so much.
I crave this stuff
With my first taste I thought, “This stuff is a little weird.” Now I crave it on my toast with olive oil every morning. Nuff said!
Super fresh and well balanced
The last za’atar I bought from a spice shop was dry and powdery. Burlap and Barrel’s version was vibrant in color, the herbs were still bright green, and it had a kind of fluffy consistency due to the ingredients not being pulverized. I’m loving the selection of spices and the quality. Thanks!
