Oasis - sichuan pepper 50g



Origin: China. Sichuan pepper offers a strange & unusual form of pungency. It produces an odd, tingling, and buzzing, numbing sensation that is something like the effect you get when you touch the terminals of a 9 volt battery to your tongue or when you drink carbonated beverages.

This spice should be lightly roasted before use so that the citrus overtones are overshadowed by the browned, woody notes that go well with meats
