5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional use
Za'atar is a traditional component of a Palestinian breakfast. Warm soft pita bread is dipped in good quality olive oil and then in Za'atar - delicious! Especially when served with fresh tomatoes, olives, haloumi style cheese, fried egg / potatoes and hot Arab / Bedouin tea (made with black tea, Maramia (dried sage) and lots of sugar).

3.0 out of 5 stars value spice but exorbitant postage
Having bought a cook book for my son which mentioned using Za'atar so thought it would be a good idea to give him some of the spices too. Spice was quite good value but was horrified at postage price for each pot!

This review is from: Za'atar Spice Blend Standard Jar 50g Zatar , Zaatar (Misc.)
Considering you can buy 10x the zatar for a similar price from another seller on amazon, I assumed I had made a mistake. Ended up buying both and this tastes exactly the same as the homemade stuff I remember eating in a then blissful Syria a few years ago. The cheaper stuff tastes like sawdust.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great spice blend!, 24 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Za'atar Spice Blend Standard Jar 50g Zatar , Zaatar (Misc.)
I just wanted to second what the other reviewer posted about this blend of spices. It is excellent. If you've been to a restaurant where they sprinkled some dried spices and toasted sesame seeds over your hummus, this is that same spice blend. It's aromatic and savoury and has good complexity. I can't believe I haven't thought to use this before.

The spice jar comes securely packaged in a sealed box. Mine was addressed by hand, which only added to the charm. I will most definitely be ordering this again.

This review is from: Za'atar Spice Blend Standard Jar 50g Zatar , Zaatar (Misc.)
I needed Za'atar spice mix and it is impossible to buy locally. Steenbergs sent the item within hours of my placing the order and so I received it less than 24hours after placing my order and in the midst of Christmas rush. Good quality too. Thank you - great service, great product.

This is a store cupboard must if you ever do any Middle Eastern or Eastern Med recipes and if you don't - what's stopping you - start immediately - time to give Thai and sushi a well earned rest!

I will check out Steenbergs when I need unusual culinary spices and flavourings. They were quick to fulfil the order too

not tried this yet, bought on a whim when purchasing other stuff. Smells fab though. Need to look for some recipes and share it with friends as there is a fair amount in the jar. Nice to have new herbs though and I was delighted to see that is was from a fairly local company

Bought this as a present to accompany a lebanese cookery book. Recipients seemed pleased with both. Due to go for a lebanese meal with them soon.
