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.

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

Unexpected delight

This hurts so good! At first I was a little nervous at first but now find myself reaching for this wonderful bottle of flavor to add a special kick to all my dishes! The green is my favorite on popcorn, and the red is s fun addition avocado toast. The quality is amazing and the company is very special, highly recommend.

You need some 50 Hertz tingle in your pantry!

I absolutely LOVE the green peppercorn oil! Great quality product and the subtle flavors shine through the zing. It has livened up a variety of my dishes including soups, sauces, salads, stir-fry, and even snacks. So thankful for this website's tip to use the green peppercorn oil's subtle yet awesome tingle on popcorn - now a family favorite! Can't wait to try it on warmed nuts, crackers, and chips. I will never be without a 50 Hertz bottle ever again. So happy to have found this product.

I prefer the Green.

This is just my personal preference. Those who like a citrusy flavor will enjoy the Red, but I'm not a fan. The Red was worth a try, but I'll stick with the Green. This is a quality, upstanding company, and I appreciate their offerings.

yay to something different

Lightly coating the baking dish with the Red Sichuan Pepper Oil adds a very nice unusual flavor to our veggie frittatas.


Perfect Sichuan flavor
Very much like being in that region in China
