Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's No. 004, Restaurant Variety


Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store" - June 2017.

These are the peppercorns that I sell to some of the top restaurants in the country. My friend in India, Divakar, regularly travels the pepper farms and cherry picks the largest, most fragrant Tellicherry peppercorns. He ships them direct in small lots so they stay incredibly fresh. No middlemen. 
Ava Gene's, voted one of the top restaurants in the country by Bon Appetit, described our Tellicherry Peppercorns as, “The finest we have ever seen.”

Our whole black Tellicherry peppercorns have a beautiful citrus aroma. Technically, they're 4.75 mm, Special Extra Bold. Not so technically, they have blow away taste.

Not a foodie, but I like pepper

I am most decidedly not a foodie. I don't spend lots of time in the kitchen preparing fancy food. I don't live in a area with fancy restaurants, and have never been inclined to spend bank on fancy food. This was the first time that I spent what I considered a lot of money on what was arguably "just seasoning." I have found these peppercorns to be noticeably better than any others that I have put in my pepper mill at home. The flavor is fresh, and the aroma also noticeably stonger. I also love the story behind DIVAKAR'S NO. 004, which is ultimately why I purchased from The Reluctant Trading Experiment. I will be giving small amounts of these excellent peppercorns with pepper mills I am currently making as gifts for my friends. I'm sure they will also notice the difference.

Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns, Divakar's No. 004, Restaurant Variety

These peppercorns are without a doubt the best I've ever tasted. Before the first taste, your nose tells you, you are in for a wonderful experience. I have always been a big fan of pepper... I just never knew it could be so delicious.

I will definitely be reordering; and, will try some of your other products.

Thank you for such a quality product and excellent customer service!!! (You can start your Macarena now). :)

Glen Plumlee G.P. Glen P. pepper at its best

I was expecting good black peppercorns...but had no idea how exceedingly good they turned out to be. Heady, robust, full flavored. You won't go wrong ordering these little black pepper bombs.
