Few words will evoke pride, nostalgia and emotion in a Lebanese person like “zåtar”. An aroma from our earliest childhood, zåtar is a staple of traditional Lebanese cuisine and even a symbol of our culture itself.

The word zåtar refers both to the Levantine oregano plant, as well as the spice blend where that plant takes center stage. This oregano plant is native to the eastern mediterranean basin and has grown there for thousands of years. Its scientific name is Origanum syriacum, and in the bible it is referred to as hyssop. Traditionally, zåtar is gathered in the wild, and typically harvested in September and October. It is then sun-dried, and ground into a powdered form that is used to create the zåtar blend.
