THE SPICE TRADER SZECHUAN PEPPER 15G
Sichuan peppercorns do not produce a heat sensation like black or white pepper. Instead, the flavour is citric and it produces a tingly numbing sensation that is akin to touching your tongue to a battery or the fizziness from soda. So why eat it? Like a chille pepper, in certain amounts the sensation can be quite pleasing and causes the release of endorphins in the brain, which make you feel pleasure. Use ‘em once and you’ll be hooked forever.
Store in a cool, dry place.
