Organic Tellicherry Pepper

Country of Origin


We are pleased to offer you this rare variety of the highest quality black peppercorns in the world. The peppercorns of the Tellicherry Garbled Special Extra Bold (TGSEB) are hand-selected from ripe, late-harvest pepper berries. They are graded by size, as well as color, and only ten percent of the entire crop is chosen as the TGSEB variety each year.

Due to the maturity of the berry when harvested, the taste of the extra bold peppercorn is warmer and more nutty in flavor compared to ordinary black pepper, with a slightly more intense peppery zing. The aroma is both citrusy, as well as reminiscent of tea and sandalwood.

This is the peppercorn served in the highest quality restaurants in the world, and now you, too, can have it right in your kitchen.

Because the Tellicherry Garbled Special Extra Bold Peppercorn is so extraordinary, we only sell whole peppercorns, as the flavor is best expressed when ground fresh in a peppermill.

We hope you enjoy this incredibly special variety of peppercorn!

Species: Piperaceae

Other names: maricha

Appearance: Peppercorns are the dried berries of a tropical perennial vine with aromatic, green oval-shaped leaves and greenish-yellow spikes. The immature fruits are harvested once they turn red and then sun-dried until they are devoid of moisture, giving it a slightly wrinkly spherical shape.

Typically used: Freshly ground

Origin: Black peppercorn has been cultivated for thousands of years in Southern Indian and Sri Lanka. This particular variety of TGSEB comes from the Indian state of Kerala on the Malabar Coast and is named for the port city of Tellicherry (Thalassery).

Flavor: Peppery, warm, nutty

Aroma: Peppery, woody, citrusy, reminiscent of tea and sandalwood

Culinary uses: Black pepper is so well-known globally, that it has been used in almost any dish you can think of. It is most often used to enhance other flavors and add a mild spicy kick to any dish. It actually acts a digestive aid and enhances the nutrient absorption of other foods it’s paired with. It is used in everything from salads to beverages to soups, stews, roasted meat, desserts, and more.

Just a hint of pepper could be all you need to season a dish, and with the Tellicherry Garbled Special Extra Bold Peppercorn for sale at Pure Indian Foods, you can be sure that you’re getting one of the highest grades of black pepper available in the world.

Grown off the Malabar Coast of India, which is considered to be one of the finest pepper production areas in the world, these peppercorns are much larger than others (4.75mm) because they absorb so many nutrients while on the vine. A delicious balance of fresh flavors and complex sweet aromas makes this the best organic black pepper seasoning for just about any dish.
