Your performance

The Wayanad pepper TGSEB is the absolute top among the Tellicherry from the Malabar coast. It is grown in the Western Ghats, in the valley of Wayanad. Unlike our Banasura pepper, this pepper is a blend of pepper varieties, just like Malabar pepper.

Protected geographical origin (India)

The pepper is grown organically by Vianamoolika Herbais in the Wayanad valley. The Wayanad area is known for the Periyar Tiger Reserve, and is part of the UNESCO-protected Cardamom Hills. The main crops in the Wayanad valley are coffee, cocoa and cardamom, and the local black pepper. The pepper is traditionally fertilized with cow dung and neem leaves (Azadirachta indica), a natural pesticide.

The plants grow in a special setting with its own microclimate, which gives the pepper plant the opportunity to grow into full, starchy berries for longer than usual. This produces a pepper that is deep red to deep brown, not black. The scent is reminiscent of sandalwood. Wayanad pepper has been under Indian Geographical Protection since 2006.

Our Wayanad pepper is a Tellicherry - collective name for large pepper berries from the Malabar region - of the type TGSEB (Tellicherry Garbled Special Extra Bold), with a grain size of 4.25 mm or larger. The pepper comes from an organic grower from Pulpally. Our pepper is dried in special rooms, not in the sun, which preserves the already exceptional aromas even better.

Why not organic?

In order to be able to supply this sustainably grown pepper under the organic designation, we will have to be certified as a packer/producer of the pepper. We are not. Although we process and store organic products and products from regular cultivation strictly separately, we are not (yet) allowed to carry the designation organic.
