All colors of Kampot pepper have the jasmine-like profile for which it is justifiably famous.

Black: A flavor in the more traditional peppercorn taste with none of the bitterness.  Aromatic at a distance.  It’s a well-rounded flavor with the expected heat but an unanticipated sweet finish.  //  Perfect for the tabletop but robust enough for steaks, stews, and braise cooking.

Red:  The sweetest.  An initial pepper flavor followed by a tangy floral aromatic finish with a punch of heat.  // Enjoy its complexity crushed and sprinkled on vanilla ice cream!

White: Hot and creamy. Subtle with a hint of floral. Mildly aromatic.  Invisible to the eye. // This ingredient is commonly used for sauces, soups, potatoes and beverages.
