Often called "Japanese pepper" or "prickly ash," Sansho is a truly ancient spice, with bright, citrusy aromatics, and an otherworldly sensation that lightly numbs lips and causes mouths to water. This particular selection is a delicate blend of three varieties of sansho: Yamakura, Asakura and Budo, coalescing with a depth of flavor that shines through all of this spice's superficial sensations.

In operation for over one hundred years, Osaka’s Yamatsu Tsujita is a venerated name in the world of fine Japanese spices. Kept in the family, today’s master blender is Mr. Tsujita, who maintains a proudly tight-knit association with all of the farmers who grow the spices for his blends. One of this mixture’s key distinguishing ingredients is Misho Yuzu, a never-grafted variety of indigenous yuzu citrus that takes fifteen years to mature from seed to fruit-bearing tree. Once picked, the fruits are hand-peeled and dried before the peels are stone-ground in a slow, deliberate rhythm lasting half a day. To form the final mixture, the ground yuzu peel is mixed with the Hawk’s Claw pepper, Asakura Sansho pepper, Ao-nori seaweed, golden sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and shiso. To best preserve its freshness, we recommend freezing Shichimi Togarashi once it has made its way to you.
