Sechuan Buttons® CupCard 30 pcs
For some people, the taste of the Sechuan Button, resembles an ‘electric’ shock. It starts with a champagne-like sensation at the top of the tongue. Then it moves around in the mouth. A kind of ‘anaesthetic’ feeling in the cheeks, a numb sensation followed by a saliva flush. Within a minute, however, this negative feeling is replaced by curiosity and the analysis of the different sensations, finally resulting in amazement.
Sechuan Button is often used as an infusion in cocktails and amuses-bouches. The flavour of Sechuan enhances and balances other flavours. In view of the intense effect of the button we advise to be careful in combination with your choice of wines.
Sechuan Buttons is a plant which has its origin in Africa and South America, when those two continents where still connected. Now it is only found in specific areas of Africa. The name Sechuan Buttons was chosen because of its flavour, which is comparable to the Sechuan Pepper.
Sechuan Buttons are available year round and can easily be stored for up to seven days at a temperature of 2-7°C.
