A versatile blend with many incarnations, Zahtar (aka Za'atar) can be used as a simple condiment with olive oil for dipping bread or baked on flat bread. It features the tartness of sumac and the nutty flavor of sesame seeds. Try on yogurt, hummus, salads and more.
Hand-mixed from: sumac, toasted sesame seeds, thyme, sea salt, oregano, savory, marjoram and ajwain seed.

"One of my favorite savory go-tos. I love the zesty tanginess of the sumac, the herbaceousness of the thyme, marjoram, and oregano, and the added depth of flavor from toasted sesame. I put this on eggs, avocados, potatoes, tofu, non-dairy cream cheese and bread. The list goes on." - Crisselle's Staff Picks, 2020
Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
