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.

I have acquired many spices from Burlap & Barrel. All are of highest quality and have not disappointed. Burlap & Barrel has allowed me to explore use of spices not available locally. I appreciate the added complexity these spices add to my culinary experience!
This is amazing. The best Thyme I’ve ever tasted.
I could smell the difference as soon as I opened the jar, and I notice the added flavor in my cooking.
This is a repeat order. I use this most days from eggs, potatoes, veggies, & sauces. When you take a pinch from the jar & crush it between your fingers it smells so fresh & heavenly. I barely bother with going out in the yard for fresh thyme. It's that good.
I made a za'atar blend using B&B hyssop, sumac, anise, Urfa pepper, and sesame. it was the most intensely flavored za'atar blend I have ever eaten when used with some olive oil on a cheese manoushe
