Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's No. 004, Restaurant Variety

Our signature product. The one that launched our company. We sell these peppercorns to some of the top restaurants in the country.

My friend in India, Divakar, regularly travels the pepper farms and cherry picks the largest, most fragrant Tellicherry peppercorns. He ships them direct in small lots so they stay incredibly fresh. No middlemen. 
Ava Gene's, voted one of the top restaurants in the country by Bon Appetit, described our Tellicherry Peppercorns as, “The finest we have ever seen.”

Our whole black Tellicherry peppercorns have a beautiful citrus aroma. I could go on and on, but our customers say it best. Read the reviews below. Also available in a USDA Organic version. (No difference in taste or aroma, just farmed differently.)

So glad I ordered

Great peppercorns! So much better than other products I’ve tried. I love pepper and these taste great in all recipes. Will definitely come back for more. Fast delivery as well.

Perfect pepper

In the past I never really used pepper in my cooking or at the table, but these peppercorns have made their way into almost every dish I cook and eat now. The flavor is really unlike any pepper I’ve had before and the smell is amazing with notes of citrus- it’s bright with just enough kick. It’s also a favorite among my family now, always asking to pass the pepper mill when we’re at the dinner table. Worth every penny.

Divakar's # 004 Spectacular Tellicherry Black Peppercorns

This was the first time I ordered from the Reluctant Trading Experiment. I ordered the Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's no.004, they were just spectacular, very fresh with a wonderful aroma with a nice spicy peppery taste. I gave some to a friend and he flipped out over them. I was so impressed with the product four days later I ordered 4 oz of Tellicherry peppercorns for my friend as a gift. Then for myself I ordered the last Lindstrom acrylic peppermill in stock, Icelandic Flake white sea salt, white peppercorns and Mr.Siews smoked black peppercorns, based on the quality of the Tellicherry peppercorns I figured I couldn't go wrong. I'm sure I'll try most of The Reluctant Trading Experiment's products. Shipping is very fast.


I absolutely love these peppercorns. Great product and wonderful customer service. Highly recommend their products

Best pepper I’ve ever had!

Shipping was fast. Product was phenomenal! It’s the best peppercorns I’ve ever had in my life! I really did not expect such a stark difference, but you can actually tell when you have the good stuff. Now I’m ruined and will never be able to go back to regular black peppercorns bought in a store.
