Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns

Exceptional pepper!
Extremely satisfied..

Awesome Tellicherry Organic Pepper!

I was recently gifted a Tellicherry pepper that wasn't from the Reluctant Trading Experiment. My friend noted that it had to be excellent because it was very expensive.....Wrong! After trying it for a couple of weeks I reordered the Organic Tellicherry Pepper from RTE. Believe me, I won't ever let anyone else try to fool me! Give this awesome product a chance!

Not your mother's pepper!

I recently ordered and received Organic Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's No. 004 from Reluctant Trading and let me tell you, they are like nothing I've experienced - in such a good way! The aroma is intoxicating and inviting. The taste is so noticeably better than your 'regular' pepper, you're going to be ruined for life; never, ever going back! Another thing I noticed right away, the peppercorns are soft and luxurious, not little, dried out pieces of gravel like other peppercorns I've used. When I began grinding these the first time, I thought my grinder was broken, it didn't sound or feel like there were rocks in there! So I looked and, sure enough, wonderful, fragrant, beautiful spice was flowing from my grinder! Viola! I'm now more Reluctant than ever! Look, you already love to cook, so spoil yourself already and order from the Reluctant Trader! What are you waiting for? Oh, and their shipping - lightening fast, I don't know what takes these other online businesses so long, they blame the pandemic but the Reluctant Trader rises above! Do it!
