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.

Unrivalled Quality of Red 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.
Disclaimer: This product should not be consumed if you have an allergy to prickly ash plants.
I have enjoyed the ma sensation for the 40+ years I have been cooking Chinese food. When I first found 50 Hz I was happy to have such a concentrated source of this sensation. Now, with the larger sizes, I can enjoy it that much more.
Still a good product, but I just prefer to use the green to get the tingle without distorting some of the other flavors I use.
just like we need to both stop and go. Along that line, I do hope to go to Sichuan -- 我要看见四川省! I had hoped to visit the home of pandas and distinctive cuisines in 2020, but that plan fell through. Then I hoped to go in 2021 and 2022, but no luck. I'll have to wait until 2023, but in the meantime there is Sichuan pepper oil.
Team, just look at my order history.
I thought this would be more hot and spicy, like peppers.
I was very disappointed with the flavor and taste.
Hi Barbara, thanks so much for your order and leaving us a review. I think what you might be looking for was a chili oil product. Our Sichuan pepper oils are indeed not hot or spicy. Rather, it gives your food a tingling numbing sensation and a floral and citrusy aroma from Sichuan peppers. We are sorry about this misunderstanding and your disappointment. Please feel free to email us if we can make it better for you.
