Flavor notes: Lemon with strong floral notes. The tingling level is comparable to the red.

The citrus note makes it ideal for use with fish and seafood because its refreshing citrusy character helps reduce the fishy smell. It also works well with chicken and vegetables too, giving it a lively zing in soups, gravies or stews. A little goes a long way!

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 Green 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.

 

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.

very odd

There was a cloying, sour-bitter taste that permeated every bite; long-lasting and very unpleasant. Emptied the bottle down the drain after two tastes.

Hi Peter, Thank you so much for your order and giving it a try. If we had to compare the green and red oils, the green would have more bitter undertones than the red. This is why the oil is best paired with food as it help the flavors to shine. I understand that having it on its own might sometimes be a little overwhelming on our palate. Thank you for sharing your honest opinion with us, it'll help us further refine how we present the oils. We hope that you will give us a chance to provide you with a positive experience.

I bring my little bottle of S-oil with me whenever I’ll be eating stri-fry! I’m addicted.
