Black Tellicherry Peppercorns come from the western Malabar Coast of southern India. Grown on the sunny slopes of Mt. Tellicherry, these peppercorns are left on the vine longer, allowing them to grow larger and develop a rich, clean, aromatic flavor with deeper citrus and floral notes. Tellicherry Peppercorns are considered the finest pepper in the world.
The Tellicherry region was of significant importance during the eras of the spice trade and the town became known for its particularly pungent peppercorns as well as exceptionally fragrant green cardamom.
