Poivre du Sichuan Rouge séché, 42g (1,5 oz)

Rating: 5.0 out of 5.0 (15)

All the way from the mountains of Gansu to this jar in your hand.

Our dried red Sichuan peppers, more accurately known as flower peppers, are tingly, not spicy. Warming and balanced, now you can grind and sprinkle this tingling sensation to all kinds of food and drinks. 

Our premium single-origin red Sichuan peppers have been hand-picked by our farmers in Sichuan, gently dried, and manually sorted. This results in:

No black seeds | Bright colors | Potent aroma and sensation 

Flavor notes: Orange Zest | Warm | Smooth & Balanced

Perfect on:


1. Sichuan pepper has zero heat and is not spicy at all! People confuse it because it is often paired with chili peppers and chili is the one that brings the heat

2. Sichuan pepper is not a pepper, it belongs to the citrus family 

3. Sichuan “peppercorn” is a common misnomer because these dried Sichuan peppers are not peppercorn. They’re the dried husk of the Sichuan pepper berry. A sign of superior quality is the lack of black seeds. 

4. Sichuan pepper is not just from Sichuan, but from a collection of places in southwestern China: Chongqing, Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, etc. 

5. We believe that the correct name for it is actually Flower Pepper which is a direct translation from the chinese term hua jiao.

Fast shipping, good packaging, sublime tingles.

These peppercorns are bright and floral, with a hint of sweet orange, and of course, a lot of tingle. A little goes a long way, but a teaspoon completely transforms a meal. Everyone should have these in their seasoning repertoire.

Sichuan Pepper

Made one of my favorite dishes Mapo Tofu using the Dried Red Sichuan Peppers I recently purchased. These peppers from 50Hertz are wonderful, very fragrant citrusy flavor with that famous tingly taste. We loved it. Trying to find seafood recipes using these peppers. Thank you.

So much better than typical Sichuan peppercorns from the Chinese grocery

I have been cooking Chinese food for over 40 years and relied on the local Chinese grocery for Sichuan peppercorns, an ingredient I have used since my first Chinese meal many years ago. But getting these peppercorns from 50 Hz has been a revelation. We love the "ma" sensation in Sichuan dishes and 50 Hz peppercorns amp it up to 11!
