EXQUISITE PEPPER FOR LOVERS
Exclusive to Curati, this hot black pepper comes to us all the way from the exquisite, green, waterfall decorated island of Pohnpei in Micronesia.
Sought after since eating began, Ancient Egyptians believed the peppercorns of the Pohnpei variety were an aphrodisiac, and that they’d not only inspire love, but boost fertility as well.
Pohnpei’s climate is particularly suited for growing pepper, situated 10 degrees north; it has only three totally sunny days a year. This creates a sort of steam sauna for the piper plant to thrive, which it famously does. Thanks to rare, naturally occurring high sugar content and volatile oils, this special spice has a sweet, clean, vivid taste. It’s perfect for seasoning meats and really, anything you love. Like your crush. Jokes! Don’t grind pepper on a human being. Or you know what? Do. Just let us know how it goes.
