This beautiful zaatar product was created as a tribute to the father of the manufacturer (Huri). His father, the late Ze’ev Ben Herut, was one of Israel’s first agricultural officers, and was responsible for adapting the wild hyssop, that was in danger of extinction from being over-picked, into the cultivated commercial hyssop plant that is still grown all across Israel. It comes in an attractive cardboard pyramid with a jar of zaatar inside and is reminiscent of the zaatar pyramid that used to be sold in the Israeli Duty-Free and tourist shops back in the 1980s.
Authentic Flavors from the Holyland. I am repeatedly told by people that this Zaatar is absolutely the best they have ever tasted, probably because the zaatar in this blend is 80% of the superior Kavrakoli strain together with only 20% of the more common Timoli strain that many other brands use.
