Green Sichuan Pepper – Nomie

Lime pepper
Green Sichuan berries are not to be confused with red Sichuan berries, their close cousin. This “false pepper” is a cousin of Sansho bay found in Japan, Timut bay which grows in Nepal, or also Indonesian Andaliman bay. It is a spice from a shrub native to the Sichuan region of China, from the Rutaceae (Zanthoxylum) family. Like yellow and lime lemons, red Sichuan and green Sichuan berries are two varieties with different flavors.
Green Sichuan berries look like peppercorns with intense citrus aromas, with lots of freshness on the palate, very aromatic with hints of lime. Beyond its unique flavor, what makes green Sichuan berries original is the numb sensation they cause on the tongue. This berry does not sting or burn like a pepper could, but it leaves a slight tingling or even a subtly numbing effect on the tip of the tongue.
Among the best green Sichuan berries, one can find those that come from southern Sichuan, along the border with Yunnan province. Our uniquely sourced faux pepper is cultivated in Jinyang County in Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan.
