Sichuan pepper, formerly known as Szechuan peppercorns, is unique for its dazzling aroma and electrifying tingling sensation. It comes in two distinct varieties, red and green. While the red have been used in cooking for centuries, the green variety has only become popular in the past 20 years. 

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.

Our single-origin product uses the Jiu Ye Qing (Nine Green Leaves) variety, and is hand-picked by farmers in Chongqing, our founder's hometown. With its bright color, floral aroma, potent taste, and lack of black seeds, it is the crème de la crème of the latest harvest.

Flavor notes: Citrus (lime zest), fresh flowers, bright

Usage: When cooking, crush with a pestle, then lightly fry in oil or butter, and add to stir-fry, soup, stew, or baking recipes. When serving, grind directly on to foods as with black peppercorns. The green goes particularly well with fish, seafood and anything citrusy.
