Freshness of a product is key and I am not "reluctant" to give this item two thumbs up!
Have just starting using the pepper corns this last week. Love the flavor.
Received a pepper grinder as a gift and couldn't decide which peppercorn to purchase after doing some research. I am glad with this purchase of the Tellicherry black whole peppercorns. The flavor in any meat is terrific. Will continue to purchase. I will let friends and family of my findings since we all love to cook!
My 15 year old said, "That's pepper... but it's not like the pepper you get from the store. It's got, like, complexity." This is a hit for the entire family. Not sure we'll ever buy pepper from the store again.
I placed my first order with The Reluctant Trading Experiment for Telicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, and it did not disappoint. First, I get a kick out of the "personality" of the web site and interactions with the company. Second, the service was quick and the company followed up to make sure my order was correct and I was happy. Third, the product is excellent -- beautiful aroma, nice spicy taste. You might not think there's much difference in peppercorns, but let me assure you, there is. Finally, I think the price was right and I got good value for what I paid.
Will definitely order from these folks again -- assuming the "experiment" continues!
