Rhus is a Lebanese-American snack company that offers a za'atar blend made with sumac, a staple in Lebanese cuisine. Their za'atar is versatile and can be used in various dishes. Rhus takes pride in providing an authentic and flavorful za'atar blend without fillers or shortcuts.

Founding Story

Our za'atar is a cherished family recipe passed down from our Lebanese grandmother. We use a generous amount of sumac, responsible for the tart and lemony flavor. Traditionally, za'atar enhances the flavor of manoushe, a flatbread with olive oil and za'atar, or serves as a garnish for Mediterranean classics like labneh, hummus, or baba ghanoush. However, we encourage you to make Rhus za'atar a part of your everyday culinary adventures, treating it like your trusted salt and pepper. Sprinkle it over tomatoes, avocados, roast chicken, eggs, or even yogurt drizzled with honey for an extra burst of flavor.
