Pure, flavorful, large berry Tellicherry pepper from India’s most respected black pepper terroirs. Our Tellicherry peppercorns are from a small village in the mountains of Kerala. This large black peppercorn has not been blended with those of other varieties or sources.
Tellicherry is the most famous black pepper exporting region of India. “Tellicherry” is name given to single-estate peppers from Kerala, distinguishing them from Malabar Pepper, which refers to black pepper blends from the region. While many Malabar peppers are very high quality, Tellicherry peppercorns are consistent, unadulterated, and bold.
The Épices de Cru Reserve is our most aromatic Tellicherry pepper. This exclusive offering consists of only the ripest of our suppliers’ berries- less than 0.05% of the entire harvest. Truly the very best the region has to offer.
These large, fully ripened, Grade 12 Tellicherry peppercorns have a rich flavor and moderate heat. Like any Tellicherry pepper, this black pepper Reserve is great for your everyday pepper grinder. It’s even better for dishes which feature the flavor of black pepper, from bread to beef. Try it in savory dishes, any black pepper sauce, or even on dessert.
