Sichuan peppercorn (Chinese: 花椒; pinyin: huājiāo; other English translations such as Szechuan pepper, Szechwan pepper, and wild pepper) has nothing to do with black pepper or chili peppers. It is not spicy at all. It is the fruit of a citrus plant called Zanthoxylum in the family of Rutaceae.

Our Sichuan peppercorn is premium-grade, has a vivid red color, and has no seeds.

Sichuan peppercorn is known for its citrus aroma and numbing & tingling effect. It contains an element called hydroxy-alpha sanshool, which gives you a tingling and numbing feeling. This feeling makes your taste buds more sensitive to flavors, and you will feel that the food becomes more delicious.
