Excellent fragrant corns
Very fresh, high quality berries. It’s quite dear, but in my experience inferior white pepper is not worth the money or the time.
Outstanding White Peppercorns—aromatic, fruity, spicy, perfumed, and wonderful in all dishes.
I had previously purchased ground white pepper from another shop and had been using it frequently in many dishes. It had quite a musky aroma, reminiscent of the hippopotamus exhibit at the local zoo if I'm being honest, but the description on the side of the bottle prepared me somewhat for the strong smell so I assumed this must be how white pepper is supposed to taste. After learning the hard way not to use a heavy hand with this particular spice, I came across an article describing The Reluctant Trading Experiment's white pepper as citrusy and bright. Not at all what I had experienced with the other brand. I ordered some right away, to compare, and opened it as soon as it arrived. The difference was astonishing. The two were absolutely nothing alike! All that time I had mostly likely been adding spoiled white pepper to my dishes and hadn't even realized it. I tossed the rest of my ground white pepper and haven't looked back. The whole white peppercorns from Reluctant Trading have a permanent spot in my spice cabinet.
This white pepper has a subtle, fresh taste. It brings out the flavor of what you season without overpowering it.
