Love my pepper!!!


Finally, pepper worthy of a grind. I was skeptical that this pepper would be that much better, but there's no question. Rather than little black flecks that allowed me to imagine pepper flavor, this is the real thing--it really pops, no imagination needed. I'm delighted.

Great Black Peppercorns!

I really like these Tellicherry Black Peppercorns. They are the best that I have found. The aroma is just fantastic and they taste great as well.

Was sceptical until I got them, wow!

These live up to the hype. They're fantastic peppercorns with a deep, rich aroma and flavor. We usually buy McCormick whole peppercorns from the local big box store. Occasionally we've bought a specialty 4 or 5 peppercorn blend. I liked the blend, but didn't see a large difference in overall flavor, so I was a bit skeptical when purchasing these storied tellicherry peppercorns.

But man, I am sold now. One whiff when we opened the package was enough to let us know these were a step above the regular ones we buy. Most peppercorns, to me, just smell like pepper - a slight spice heat on the nose. These, however, have a body to their scent. The pepper smell is there but also a scent of pine and flowers. They taste just as good as they smell. A slight heat with a defined flavor that sits on the tongue. We will absolutely be buying these again!
