Zanthoxylum Piperitum - Sichuan Pepper Candle
Sichuan pepper is named for the mountainous region in China where it has been grown for centuries. Called “flower pepper” in China, this spice rare in Europe is not actually a pepper. Belonging to the Rutaceae, that gather the citrus family, its berries are more reminiscent of a fruit than a peppercorn.
A balance of fresh citrus and spicy notes, Sichuan pepper is strong and aromatic. In its complex bouquet, notes of fresh citrus, green and bergamot contrast with warm, spicy notes.
Sichuan pepper is known for:
✓ Its invigorating and aphrodisiac properties
✓ Strengthening the immune system
