Tellicherry Peppercorns in Glass Science Flask


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

You don't have to be Walter White to appreciate this item. We're serving up our signature TePe (Organic Tellicherry Peppercorns) in real glass Erlenmeyer flasks. They look cool as heck on any kitchen countertop, they're reusable and dishwasher safe. And they make awesome gifts.

The flasks aren't just eye candy. though. They're filled with our signature Tellicherry Peppercorns. My friend Divakar regularly visits the plantations in India and cherry picks the largest Tellicherry peppercorns he can find just for Reluctant Trading. Our minimum size is 4.75 mm. Special Extra Bold. They're USDA Organic and Fairtrade. 

One of the top restaurants in the country, Ava Gene’s, described our peppercorns as, “the finest (Tellicherry) we have ever seen. The flavor and fragrance is comparable to the complex notes of a fine aged wine.”

Also makes a perfect pair or trio with our NaCl (Icelandic Coarse, Flaky White Sea Salt) and PeBl (5-Peppercorn Blend) gift flasks.

Tellicherry Black Whole Peppercorns

Fast chipping and the super-fresh pepper. As soon as I received, I put in my grinder and used the pepper immediately. The flavor was exactly what I needed. The price is a good value as well. Thank you! I will purchase from you guys again.

Do This!

Fresh, fragrant, and nicely nuanced. This Tellicherry is now in my standard rotation at the kitchen table. I'm also impressed by The Reluctant Trading Expirement and their friendly communication. This is obviously an organization that has customer service at the forefront of their mission. Superior products, fast, friendly service - a rarity these days. I recommend you take advantage of this opportunity to work with real people who take great pride in making available such unusually unique and special products.

Absolutely Wonderful

The Reluctant Trader’s Divikar’s tellicherry peppercorns are in no way comparable to others I’ve tried!
Love pepper and am so grateful to have found what I’m sure are the best!

Worth the extra money

I was hesitant to buy because I get Tellicherry pepper elsewhere at lower prices. But this pepper is a cut above--and therefore worth the price. It is both gentle and flavorful. I have been using it a couple of months now, so I am comfortable with my review. One suggestion: Better packaging for storage and reuse.
