Tellicherry Peppercorns (ounce)
Tellicherry pepper, Piper Nigrum, is believed by many to be the best black pepper that you can get. Many folks refer to it as simply Tellicherry. Named after a port on the Northern end of India's Malabar coast, Tellicherry pepper is a high-quality grade of uniform, large, "bold" Malabar pepper. In the beginning, the northern Tellicherry berries had the reputation for being truly superior in both the size of the berry and the quality of the taste. However, now the term Tellicherry is used more as a designation to a peppers quality rating. These Tellicherry peppercorns have an aroma that's a bit citrusy and grassy with hints of cedar, cherries and juniper. The balanced flavor and complex aroma make it an excellent stand-alone pepper.
