An unmistakable, dry, lemony flavor tingles and leaves a mild and pleasant numbness in the mouth. Sichuan Pepper isn’t truly “pepper,” but that doesn’t mean it won’t bite!

Sichuan pepper shares a close botanical relationship with many species of bonsai tree. Unlike peppercorns, it’s made from the seed husks of several species of closely related prickly shrubs.
