Bo Tree Black Kampot Pepper is the world’s gourmet pepper. Citrus aromas combine with a unique heat to produce an unmistakable taste sensation. Picked green before drying to create a rich, fresh, ripe pepper profile.
Botanical Name: Piper Nigrum.
Great Taste 2017 Award Winner. Judges Comments:
A very fresh, intensely hot pepper but with levels of aromatics to match the heat. Even the heat has levels on the tongue. There are wonderful waves of both menthol and floral aromatics coming through at some length. An outstanding pepper.
Description & Use: All true pepper whether black, white, green or red comes from the berries of a tropical evergreen vine. Black peppercorns are the green unripe peppercorns picked from the vine and dried in the sun. The natural enzymes in the outer husk (pericarp) of the peppercorns turn the green berries black on drying, forming the volatile oil piperine which gives black pepper its characteristic flavour.
Black Kampot Pepper is best suited to enhance the flavour of robust meat dishes, slow cooking and savoury sauces (you’ll never taste a better Steak Au Poivre). BBQ’s also love Black Kampot Pepper.
Produced and packaged in Cambodia.
