Lebanesethyme.com is the idea of young Lebanese people, to bring to internet the well-known tasty thyme with quality ingredients and recipes. Our target is to let the internet surfers enjoy tasting the rarest plant existing in the smallest country at the Mediterranean Sea named Lebanon.

Our product comes from the holy nature of Lebanon.

Thyme known as “Zaatar” in Lebanon grew in the Lebanese highest mountains known as “Jered” from our Lebanese ancestors.

This plant is unique by its form, smell, taste and rareness to be found in nature.

Therefore, the thyme started to be the center of many experiments, which leads to discover its important benefits for the human body and on the psychological plan as well.

The fields from were we pick the thyme are surrounding the villages of Bentael and Mechehlan.  Bentael is a natural reserve located at 550 meters above the Sea. Bentael means the daughter of God in the old Syriac language.
