Our single-origin product uses the most premium line of Da Hong Pao (Big Red Gown) variety. Only this variety shows this dazzling flower peddle shape as you can see in the photos. It is hand-picked by farmers in Sichuan and Gansu and Sichuan province. With its bright color, floral aroma, potent taste, and lack of black seeds, it is the crème de la crème of the latest harvest.

Sichuan pepper, formerly known as Szechuan peppercorns, is unique for its dazzling aroma and electrifying tingling sensation. Unlike chili peppers with New World origins, the red Sichuan pepper is indigenous to China and has been used in cooking for centuries, defining iconic dishes such as Mapo Tofu and Kung Pao Chicken.

Sichuan pepper is really a member of the citrus prickly ash family. Unlike black peppercorns, the numbing ingredients like hydroxy-alpha sanshool are concentrated in the SHELL, not the SEED. Fresh peppers have to be handpicked as automation hasn't arrived, and then gently dried so that the shell can split open and the black, bitter seed can fall out.

Top quality, premium peppercorns.

Top quality, premium peppercorns. You won't find any that are fresher and non-heat treated coming out of China other than 50Hertz.
