The Sansho berry resembles peppercorns, with intense aromas of lemongrass and lime, and lots of freshness. This berry doesn't sting or burn like a pepper, but it does leave a slight tingle or even a subtle anaesthetic effect on the tip of the tongue.

Harvested in Japan's Wakayama prefecture, this "false pepper" is a cousin of the Sichuan berry found in China, or also the Timut berry that grows in Nepal.

Tasting notes:

Widely used in Japanese cuisine, it is particularly useful for seasoning broths and ramen. It can be found at the restaurant table, ground to a powder, or in a blend of 7 spices called Shichimi tōgarashi.

Its fresh, green citrus flavors make this "false pepper" a spice that's perfect for spicing up fruit salads, or any cooked or raw fish. A few infused berries will subtly flavor a whipped cream, panna cotta, or cheesecake.
