Flowering Hyssop Thyme

Regular price $7.99 Sale

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.
