Sansho is one of the oldest spices in human history, often called Japanese pepper or prickly ash. This product from Yamatsu Tsujita has all of the hallmarks - a bright, citrus-y aroma, it makes your mouth water and your tongue & lips mildly numb. But what makes it special is that it is a delicate blend of three varieties of sansho: Yamakura, Asakura and Budo. This produces a depth of flavor that shines through it all. This pleasant spice pairs really well with meats, seafood (BBQ eel, scallops, etc.) and hotpot dishes as is, also very fun to make Sansho Salt for yourself (mix sansho powder with salt by three to one).
Keep in freezer when not using to preserve freshness.
