DESCRIPTION

Fine ground, highly aromatic Allepey pepper acclaimed for its superb flavour and bite. These 'bold' berried peppers are sourced from the erstwhile shipping port 'Allepey' - a Southern district of Kerala.

Pepper has a sharp, hot and biting taste. It's a warming spice. It is one of the oldest and important spices in the world. So important, that in ancient times it was used to pay taxes. In 410 A.D, when the Huns lay seige of Rome, 3000 pounds of pepper was demanded as ransom.

India holds a supreme position in the production of pepper. Two of its celebrated varieties are 'Malabar Garbled' and 'Tellichery Extra bold'. The finest Indian pepper is grown in the monsoon forests of the Malabar coast in Kerala.
