Red vs. Green Sichuan Pepper: Many people are unaware that Sichuan pepper comes in two varieties - Red and Green. They are not in different stages of maturity but two plants with distinct flavors (think of red wine grapes and white wine grapes). Both are native to Sichuan, and while the red ones have been used in cooking for thousands of years, the green variety is more boutique and has only become popular in China in the past 20 years. You can compare and contrast them yourself by buying both oils in our 2-bottle pack.

Unrivalled Quality of Sichuan Pepper

While dried Sichuan (Szechuan) peppercorns offer remarkable flavors, they must be ground and prepared, with a possibility that coarse fragments give an unpleasant mouth feel. Sichuan pepper oil on the other hand is more convenient to use and preserves the flavor and potency much longer. It is not another hot sauce. In fact, it is not hot at all. The floral bouquet flavor stimulates your palate and nose, while the unique tingling sensation stimulates your tongue and lips. Best as a condiment over pasta, ramen noodles, pizza and salads. A few drops go a long way.

Freshest Product Shipped by Air

We airlift the oils right after the annual harvest in July and August directly from selected farms in the mountains of the Chongqing and Sichuan region. Airlifting helps ensure they are the freshest products outside of China.

Direct Sourcing from Farmers

Sichuan peppers are handpicked as automation has not arrived. While avoiding the thorns, farmers need to work carefully to preserve the peppers and keep them intact. This also reduces the presence of stalks and leaves, ensuring better flavor. Handpicking requires a dexterous, attentive and experienced labor force - notice the sharp thorns on the branches in this short clip.

Premium Cold-Pressed Rapeseed Oil

We use premium non-GMO cold-pressed rapeseed oil. No preservatives, no allergy-causing soybean oil.

Bottled in Georgia in compliance with the US food handling, packaging and labeling standards

Disclaimer: This product should not be consumed if you have an allergy to prickly ash plants.

Love those tingles on lips, mouth and tongue!

I first had Sichuan peppers over a decade ago on a trip to China. It's great to now be able get this here in Canada. The Sichuan pepper oils are delicious and the tingling a wonderful addition food. I particularly liked it on barbequed chicken.
Ordering was easy and the package came very quickly, despite the pandemic.
