Aranya Black Pepper

We'd describe our beloved black pepper like a beautiful red wine - it's complex, layered, and deserves to be savored. Sometimes it feels like we've created a swarm of Aranya hoarders and evangelists, which makes sense because it truly makes every meal feel like a special occasion.

“With notes of red wine and nutmeg, this black pepper is an epiphany.”

  • We taste tested 9 different peppers from some of the best farms and estates across the country, and this one won out by far. She's complex and deep like nice wine, and still got a nice fruity heat in the back.

    Grown on the Parameswaran family farm, where Parameswaran and his son Akash have been naturally farming pepper for over 35 years, amidst passion fruit, tigers (no, really!), and the largest collection of bamboo and palm varieties in the region! Their Aranya pepper is vine ripened, hand harvested with utmost care to ensure maximum flavor and unreasonably tastiness.
