Sichuan Peppers are one of the only spices in the world that carry their trademark "numbing" flavour, which numbs your tongue without any spice. Use in combination with spicy food for a party in your mouth. The most unusual yet enjoyable use we've seen is small quantities of Sichuan Pepper powder fused into egg custard pudding.

Quality*... Shining Red Flower, Extra Bold

Industry Knowledge... Varieties of Sichuan Peppercorns can found throughout the temperate zones of China, Japan, the Himalayas and North America, but in the strictest sense refers to the red flower pepper - native to the Sichuan Province in Northern China. These Chinese Sichuan Peppercorns provide a unique sensation on the taste buds, instead of being hot or pungent like other peppers and chillies. They create a unique tingling, numbing sensation which prepares the palate for the intense heat usually accompanied with the peppers. Sichuan Peppercorn seeds themselves do not contribute to the taste - they are gritty and unpleasant to taste. At Regency we have carefully removed all seeds from our Sichuan Peppercorns meaning they are ready for immediate use and no additional preparation is needed! Learn more about Sichuan Pepper.
