India Tree Tellicherry Peppercorns
- THE STORY
Pepper is the king of spices. It was one of the first spices to be traded in the ancient world and is the most traded spice in the world today. For a very long time, the best pepper was grown along the Malabar Coast of India and shipped from the port of Tellicherry.
Tellicherry peppercorns are the largest, the plumpest, the most pungent and the most aromatic of all black peppers. Use Tellicherry Pepper to flavor both savory and sweet dishes, especially those made with berries and other fruits.
In actuality, "India" was not a single place or kingdom, but a composite of many countries and cultures as yet unknown to Western civilization.
The desire of Europeans to discover "India" gave birth to the Age of Exploration, followed by three centuries of expanding trade and colonization. It also gave birth to new nations. America grew strong and prosperous on trade with the East.
The never ending quest for the exotic has given rise to many legends. Inspired by such tales, INDIA TREE, under the leadership of Gretchen Goehrend, Founder and President, is creating a legend of its own by bringing together under the INDIA TREE label an extraordinary assortment of quality products from around the world.
