USDA Organic Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's No. 004


Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store"

This is the organic version of the peppercorns I sell to top restaurants. You can find the Restaurant Variety here. My friend in India, Divakar, regularly travels the pepper farms and cherry picks the largest, most fragrant organic Tellicherry peppercorns. He ships them direct in small lots so they stay incredibly fresh. No middlemen. Top restaurants in the country now buy from us.

    Best pepper I've ever tried

    Extraordinarily fragrant, super flavorful -- highly recommended! Loved the environmentally friendly shipping/packing materials, too.

    Best pepper ever!

    This is my second order, and I continue to be a big fan of your peppers and your customer service. Everything arrived fresh, well packed, and on time. Your pepper makes others seem like lightly flavored dust . Thank you for such potent, fragrant and flavorful peppers!!


    USDA Organic Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's No. 004

    I don't think I knew what real pepper was before this

    I've always considered myself a big salt and pepper fan. Primarily pepper over salt. But this pepper is a game changer. It's so flavorful and only enhances anything it's on. This is a must for any pepper fan, I use it on everything. Thanks guys

    Best Black Pepper Ever!

    When I opened the foil bag and took a whiff, I said out loud, “So, this is what pepper is supposed to smell like!” We use quite a bit of pepper in our cooking and I have purchased Tellicherry peppercorns from several sources but I must say that these are by far the very best. This is my second shipment of the 8oz. size and The Reluctant Trading Experiment is now my go-to source. Love your stories, sense of humor, and packaging, too. Please keep doing what you do by sourcing the best of the best!
