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

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.

These whole black Tellicherry peppercorns have a beautiful citrus aroma.

    Real taste

    Finally! Real pepper taste with three cranks of the mill.


    Used on a SRF gold brisket and it was fantastic.


    Love the peppercorns, excellent quality and taste! My family and I cannot get enough.

    Best peppercorns you can buy!

    This is not the first time I've bought these peppercorns, and it won't be the last. They are larger and tastier than any Tellicherry peppercorns I've purchased in the past. I refuse to use pre-ground pepper dust, and won't I even use it when eating out, as it's flavorless. Tellicherry is my pepper of choice, and this company sells the absolute best one. In a blind taste test I gave my husband, between pepper dust I borrowed from a friend, freshly ground regular Tellicherry from somewhere that I bought before I started buying these, and this brand, my husband voted for the one from Reluctant Trading. I had already taste tested both whole peppercorns and voted for this one. The color is also much better-there are almost no green corns, and the black is a deep, rich color. The other brand was a grayish black with a lot of green corns, which I think made it not nearly as tasty as these. Yes, they're more expensive, but they are well worth the few extra dollars. It's like the difference between round steak and and a beautiful ribeye; both are steaks, but which one would you want to eat? Buy these, you'll thank me later.

    Everyone should buy this pepper!

    I am an accomplished home cook and have been cooking for many years. I’ve purchased a couple of other Tellicherry peppercorn brands in the past, but have been using something basic for the past several years because #convenience and #itcomesinbulk. Big mistake. After a lot of frustration I went down the online rabbit hole to search for something better. I stumbled onto this website and was intrigued by the story. Once I purchased these peppercorns (and they were quick to arrive!) I immediately could see, smell, and taste the difference. The amazing aroma when I opened the pouch! The peppercorns grind so smoothly in my pepper grinder! The taste when added to food! I 100% will continue to purchase these. And everyone else should as well.
