Za'atar has a long and rich history that dates back thousands of years in the Middle East. The word "za'atar" is believed to have originated from the Arabic word for thyme, which is one of the key ingredients in the spice blend.
The use of za'atar can be traced back to ancient times, when it was used by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans for both culinary and medicinal purposes. It was believed to have healing properties and was used to treat a variety of ailments.
In the Middle Ages, za'atar became a popular spice blend throughout the Middle East, and it was used to add flavor to bread, meat, and vegetables. It was also used as a condiment, and it was often sprinkled on top of labneh (a type of Middle Eastern yogurt) or mixed with olive oil as a dip for bread.
Today, za'atar is still a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine, and it is enjoyed around the world. It is often used as a seasoning for meat, fish, and vegetables, and it can also be sprinkled on top of hummus, roasted chickpeas, and other dishes. In addition to its culinary uses, za'atar is also believed to have health benefits, such as boosting the immune system and aiding in digestion.

I'm glad to have found this company! Communication is good, their transparency on their site makes me like them even more. The quality of the saffron is amazing and I purchased more right away after receiving this package.
I didn’t get my first order sadly but the company responded super quickly to my email & reshipped the item. I got it today & can’t wait to use it! 10/10 customer service.
Great quality! Professional customer service and fast delivery!
We love the quality of the product!
Very nice great quality and good size for the price
The saffron is really lovely. There was a small problem with my order and I mentioned it not expecting anything to be done, in no time at all the company reached out to me, fixed the issue and sent me some extra saffron as a gift. It was unexpected and this type of customer service can be rare these days. Highly recommend.

Great saffron, delicious in recipes and smells divine! However the packaging could be better. The glass container was outside of the bubble wrap, and moved freely in my package. Thankfully it was not broken but it certainly could have been in the shipping journey. Maybe wrap it in its own bubble wrap next time.
I bought saffron from Heray Spices after reading about its well-supported and long-standing health benefits attributes.
I have recently gone through surgery, chemo and radiation which had left me with a number of life altering side effects. I was fortunate to find Heray Spices and Mohammad, whose assistance and obvious depth of care for both his product and growers was an inspiration. The jar of spice arrived promptly 3 weeks ago and I have replaced my morning coffee with a delightful saffron latté. At this point, it is too soon to attest to the anti-inflammatory benefits but I can certainly confirm I am feeling much more calm and my anxiety levels have dropped significantly. (Not only that but it is sweet enough on its own so I am saving 365 tsps of sugar a year!)
I look forward to discovering its other health benefits over time.
Thank you Mohammad and your growers for the most beautiful and fresh saffron I have ever seen and all of the information provided which I hope to explore in greater depth.
It has been a delightful discovery and experience.

We received Heray Saffron as a gift and are so happy with it. The quality is excellent. We tasted it against another saffron and Heray was the best by far.
The Pistachio Brittle is delicious! The packaging for shipping could be better. It was partially open when I opened the box and the saffron bottle was loose in the package as well.
Best cumin I have ever use. Totally different then the usual. Aromatic, delicate, multi dimentional in fragrance and energy.. Will try other spices from this company.
I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to work with this company. When my package came, I assumed it was in the mailbox when I couldn’t find it I panicked and emailed Mohammed. He immediately emailed me back and said that he would send out a new package in time for my dinner party. It happened to be on the side of my house which I subsequently found. I emailed them back and told him thank you and that I was sorry for the misunderstanding. Not many companies treat their customers this way with such respect and kindness. I appreciated it very much. The saffron was of the highest quality, and I will always use them from now on.
The product is top notch, and I keep in the fridge and it will last you a couple of years easy
