Like Grains of Paradise, Indian long pepper was freely used alongside (and often confused with) common black pepper in kitchens from ancient Rome to Renaissance Europe. Its flavour is much more complex than black pepper, reminiscent of spice blends like garam masala more than a single spice. It possesses black pepper's heat and musk, but in a less harsh, more nuanced way, tempered by sweet notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom. Its finish lingers on the tongue with a tobacco-like coolness, where black pepper stings, long pepper balms. Packed in 50 ml volume flat bottomed test tubes with product weight of approximately 31 g.
