This is a medley of whole peppercorns including best quality black Tellicherry, White, Green and Pink for a wonderful mix of flavors.  Add freshly ground peppercorns to your cooking repertoire to punch up the flavor in every savory dish. For a peppery burst of flavor, simply grind a few peppercorns using your peppermill during cooking or at the table.

Black, white and green peppers all come from the woody tropical plant Piper nigrum.   Pink peppercorns are berries from the Schinus terebinthifolious (the Brazilian pepper). The dried berries are employed as culinary spice.

Here is a bit of history about  pepper.  An exorbitant price was levied on pepper during the Middle Ages.  Italy had a monopoly on the trade and this was as one of the inducements which led the Portuguese to seek a sea route to India. In 1498, Vasco da Gama became the first person to reach India by sailing around Africa.

 When asked by Arabs (who spoke Spanish and Italian) why they had come, his representative replied, "we seek Christians and spices".
