Onsa's Olive Oil

With love (and flavor) from Tunisia.

We’ve been selling oil from Majid Mahjoub—our source for couscous, harissa, and a slew of outstanding foods from Tunisia—for a few years now. But brand new to our shelves is Onsa’s extra virgin olive oil, named for Majid’s wife Onsa.

It’s made from unique-to-Tunisia chetoui olives. In a small section of Majid’s orchard, the olives are allowed to remain on the tree a bit longer before harvesting. Harvesting the olives when they’re more mature lends a softer, sweeter quality to the oil, though it’s still got a healthy, bitter, peppery kick.

Exclusive for Zingerman's.

The current harvest, picked late in the 2016 season, has an aroma with lots of green notes, like green banana and grass. The flavor is pleasantly bitter, with notes like arugula and radicchio. There's a slow building pepper in the finish.
