Szechwan (also spelled Szechuan) peppercorns are a true taste sensation like none other in the spice world. They are very fragrant, slightly woody with a hint of citrus. When you bite into a berry, you’ll taste an immediate citrus like flavor followed by a slight numbing effect which bursts into a tingling sensation on the tip of your tongue. This sensation is caused by an enzyme releasing; waking up your mouth and intensifying all the intermingling flavors.

Szechwan peppercorns are a true taste sensation like none other in the spice world.

Dry-roasting these berries will bring out their best flavor. Roast berries for 3-4 minutes over medium heat. After they cool, grind and use as needed. Great for stir fries, grilling and roasting. Try on chicken, fish, beef and veggies.

These peppercorns are from the Central Province of China.
"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome website. A friend sent me your website and I was like a kid in a candy store seeing your wide variety of spices, salts, herbs, etc. Being someone that's not extremely well versed in what I'd consider 'exotic' ingredients, it was an absolute pleasure to see the products' history, uses, taste and general information. Just wanted to voice my appreciation. Thanks so much!"
