Went in for quality pepper for an A5 Wagyu steak. Service described it as woody, earthy, aromatic. But this is absolutely not a pepper for a steak. Maybe if that steak was in a curry or something but yeah.
It is oily, fragrant and aromatic, acrid and bitter without much spice. Not super neutral to the pallet like regular peppercorn which is just slightly chalky with a spicy kick. Maybe good for dishes with other flavors like cardamom ice cream and the like but not really what I wanted. Wish I got something else because I doubt I'll use this unless I make an Indian or Middle Eastern dish.
The most fragrant and uniquely tasting pepper. And I thought the Meadow just specialized in salts, bravo
Cubeb Pepper from Indonesia
Received salt, pepper and combination of each. The products were delivered in a timely fashion and, most important the products were great, especially the combination salt/pepper which has proven to be versatile (and flavor enhancing).
Pepper was well-packaged and quite fragrant. I wish the image on the site matched the item I received. Wish there was more and even an option for grinder top would be a nice touch too.
