False Peppercorns

False Peppercorns

Les faux poivres possèdent tout le piquant des vrais poivres. Ils ressemblent véritablement aux vrais poivres ; d'aucuns sont doux, fruités ou relevés. Néanmoins ils sont issus d'une autre plante que le Piper Nigrum. Dans les temps anciens,"le Roi des épices" était une monnaie d'échange, longtemps réservé à une élite. Conscients de ce potentiel et de cette valeur, producteurs et marchands ont appelé les "faux poivres" les baies roses, baies de Sechuan, de Timut et autres épices, présentant elles-aussi un intérêt certain.

  • Real peppercorns
    <p>Le Poivre est originaire de la Côte de Malabar au sud-ouest de l'Inde. C'est une liane qui appartient à la famille botanique des Pipéracées.On en trouve aujourd'hui dans de nombreux pays de la ceinture tropicale. Le vrai poivre est issu des lianes tropicales de Piper Negrum dont on tire le poivre blanc, noir, rouge ou vert, et Piper Longum, le poivre long. D'autres se présentent sous la forme d'une baie portant une queue. Les faux poivres possède tout le piquant des vrais poivres. Certains sont plus doux ou plus fruités. Ils sont en fait issus d'une autre plante, bien différente du Piper.</p>

  • Allspice (Jamaica pepper)

    From €6.30

    A warm nose, spiced with a dominant note reminiscent of clove oil, freshly grated nutmeg, and burnt juniper berries or Tasmania berries, a subtle touch of cinnamon with a hint of pepper, but also fresh citrus and menthol notes reminiscent of eucalyptus leaves.

  • Forest pepper from Lai Chau

    From €6.70

    It has a very pleasant nose, marked by bright citrus notes as well as Corsican clementine and eucalyptus with aniseed and menthol peaks. These are followed by warmer notes which are sweet, delicious, evoking candied citron and angelica. In the palate it develops a brief and delicate spice, followed by a pleasant bitterness which fades quickly to leave place for a long-lasting finish with very marked citrus notes. It is a subtle and delicate "pepper", rich in flavor.

  • Dehydrated and peeled pink berries

    From €8.90

    These are traditional pink berries whose skins have been peeled. The interest of doing this is that you can use the corns in a pepper mill, without clogging the mechanism. On an olfactory level, aromas are increased tenfold, with strong floral and very intensely fruity notes, with a very elegant resinous side.

  • Siltimur berries

    From €11.00

    The dominant aroma is lemon and citronella, very fresh with intense fruitiness. To taste there is no anaesthetic effect, nor is it really spicy, the flavour is citrus - lemon, mandarin, candied citron, with spicy notes of camphor and a touch of menthol. The last taste is a mild and pleasant bitterness.

  • Freeze-dried Tasmanian berries

    From €9.80

    They have the same flavours as the dehydrated peppercorns, but with less power and more delicacy. The berry is perfumed with notes of myrtle and aromatic plants.
    The laurel smell is dominant and we find green walnut nuts and a floral perfume with camphor notes, evoking fragrant geraniums. The taste is mild, the spice is not immediate but it develops in mouth accompanied by a bitter touch. It leaves a fresh and fruity taste in the palate. Clove flavor with fruity notes of currants, blueberry and cassis and hints of juniper.

  • Dried whole Tasmanian berries

    From €17.20

    The berry is perfumed with notes of myrtle and aromatic plants. The laurel smell is dominant and we find very pronounced green walnut nuts and a floral perfume with camphor notes, evoking fragrant geraniums. The taste is mild, the spice is not immediate but it develops in mouth accompanied by a bitter touch. It leaves a very fresh and fruity taste in the palate. Clove flavor with fruity notes of currants, blueberry and cassis and hints of juniper.

  • Nepalese black Timut berries

    From €37.00

    Their aromas are powerful, intoxicating, developing notes of ripe grapefruit, passion fruit and exotic fruits. The flavour is fruity, floral, with a subtle heat and slightly anaesthetic spiciness.
