  • What is black pepper from East Timor?

    East Timor black pepper is an exceptional pepper. It is distinguished by its first herbaceous and powerful olfactory notes ! On tasting, these small peppercorns explode in the mouth. One discovers a very pronounced spiciness followed by warm and sweet notes. The finish offers notes of cocoa, fruity in the mouth.

    David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to present you this pepper so dear to my heart. The fruit of my travels in the footsteps of Pierre Poivre, the black pepper of East Timor is my Holy Grail. A world exclusive that I am proud to offer you as a spice researcher.

    The East Timor pepper harvest

    The harvest of this exceptional pepper takes place from April to June. It is entirely hand-picked. 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 East Timor black pepper.

    The differences between the different colours of pepper

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

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

    Black pepper is a pepper that benefits from a long enough sun drying to take its black colour.

    Red pepper is a mature pepper. The berries are harvested when they are red. Then it is 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 is then rubbed and dried.


    The origins of East Timor pepper

    East Timor is located in Southeast Asia. It is in this former Portuguese colony that Pierre Poivre discovered what he considers 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 liana on the island.

    Black pepper nowadays

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