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.

Only used this herb once, but really like it! Thyme with a light flowery (as opposed to sometimes overpowering thyme flavor). Overall experience really good.
i only use your spices. they are the best.
Opening the jar is like getting a burst of aroma therapy in the kitchen. I often stop to smell when I am cooking. I absolutely adore this herb on chicken, though I have also used it on carrots and zucchini as well. And if you haven't tried this flowering hyssop thyme, wild mountain cumin and honey on carrots, you are missing out!
Mirepoix is in most of my dishes and often calls for thyme. With fresh dried herbs if the recipe calls for 1/2 tsp, I cut it in half, else I find it overpowers the recipe.
Thyme can quickly lose its flavor and often is not worth purchasing, but Burlap & Barrel’s thyme is fresh and tasty. I throw some on my salads every time I make one for added flavor and immune support.
