Wild Assam Pepper

Wild Assam Pepper, known as pipli, raru hamang and a host of other names is wildcrafted in the tropical forests of India. The taste is smoky and very tingly, with a citrus peel aftertaste and much less piquancy than black pepper. Wild Assam pepper is a true pepper, closely related to long pepper and familiar black pepper. It has been used in seasoning and Ayurvedic medicine for millennia.
