    East Timorese black pepper is an exceptional pepper. It is distinguished by its first herbaceous and powerful olfactory notes When tasted, these small grains explode in the mouth. We discover a very pronounced spiciness followed by warm and sweet notes. The finish offers notes of cocoa, fruity in the mouth.

    The East Timorese pepper harvest

    This exceptional pepper is harvested from April to June. It is entirely handmade. Once harvested, the berries are exposed to the sun for a few days. Once dry, they develop all their aromas and more particularly, the notes of hemp, typical of black pepper from East Timor.

    The differences between the different colours of pepper

    Red, black, green, white... there are several "colours" of pepper. These indicate the maturity level of the berries at harvest, but also the level of drying of the berries.

    Green pepper is a pepper that is harvested early. It has a rather sweet taste.

    Black pepper is a pepper that is sun-dried long enough to turn black.

    Red pepper is a mature pepper. The berries are harvested when they are red. Then it will be dried in the shade to preserve its aromas.

    White pepper is a red pepper that has been soaked in water until it loses its pericarp. It will then be rubbed and dried.


    The origins of East Timorese pepper

    East Timor is located in south-east Asia. It was in this former Portuguese colony that Pierre Poivre discovered what he considered to be one of the best peppers. We are in the second half of the 18th century and the famous botanist is trying to put an end to the Dutch monopoly. At that time, the Timorese were just beginning to develop the cultivation of this vine on the island.

    While world pepper production reaches more than 355,000 tons, Timor favours a more rational production. Vietnam is the world's largest producer, followed by India.
