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.

    I am so happy to have stumbled across Reluctant Trading. The company back story is charming and personal. For a small business, the shipping speed was remarkable. Most important, the Tellicherry peppercorns reward you with fruit, citrus and plenty of peppery heat. Just superb. The Icelandic salt has a noticeably clean taste and crisp texture. The packaging is unique and minimal. Once opened, I slipped the interior sleeve into a small zip lock bag so it could be returned to the original carton and continue to grace my cabinets. Thanks RTE!

    I was reluctant too, at first, but now I'm a believer!

    I was reluctant too at first as I thought, nah it's the same as other tellicherry peppercorns I've tried. But no, as soon as I opened the bag, the fragrant aroma of the peppercorns enticed and excited the foodie in me. I immediately pour some in my pepper mill and out comes the most perfect black pepper I have ever tasted! Nice aroma and even better taste! I even tried to use my other pepper and compared it to this on a sunny side up egg, and guess which one I liked better? Yes, it's the USDA Organic Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's No. 004!
