Cubeb pepper, native to Indonesia and long used in traditional herbal medicine, is distinguished by its attached stalk — the reason it is also called “tailed pepper.” The berries are harvested by hand so as not to damage the delicate plant, cured, soaked, then dried in the sun to a deep brown-black. Our Cubeb Pepper has a minty and lightly peppery flavor, with notes of pine, eucalyptus and allspice.
Cubeb pepper now also comes in our special Longevity jar made of thick, durable, unique glass which blocks out damaging light that causes decay. This airtight, light-proof jar blocks out harmful air, moisture, and light, protecting our spices and preserving their freshness. Our Longevity jar not only looks beautiful and elegant, but it's also completely reusable, eco-friendly, and will last for years. All spices in the Longevity collection come in refill packs, so you only need to get the Longevity jar once for each spice and then just get the refill packs when the spice runs out, reducing waste and creating a sustainable solution for your kitchen. Longevity jar size: 2" diameter, 3.5" high.
