Peppercorn - Black - Tellicherry
India / Piper nigrum
Black pepper. It inspired the Age of Discovery, once trading for a price above gold. Not bad for a seasoning! Five centuries later, it remains a favorite.
Tellicherry is a renowned grade of pepper because of the large size of the peppercorns and the mature flavor that goes along with it. Originally named for a region of the Malabar coast along India's western flank, Tellicherry-grade pepper is bold, with delicious complexity and a mild, quickly dissipating heat. The aroma of this pepper is robust, with layers of complex spice and earthiness and a floral-citrus top note.
We bring in a fresh crop of whole Tellicherry peppercorns every year for maximum freshness, and recommend grinding them right before use to experience optimal flavor.
