"Electric" feeling. First time users, taste sparingly!

To munch on, in a cocktail, crumbled in a sorbet or an ice cream, with the desserts, for dressing, with raw fish, as palate cleanser…

The taste is for some people like "electric". It reminds them of when they were kids putting 9v batteries on their tongue for fun.The Sechuan Button sensation starts with a champagne-like tingling on the top of your tongue. After that it will move through your mouth with a kind of “PopRocks™” feeling… In short, you hate it or you love it but you will remember it with a smile! An advice for the first time tasters: be careful and taste a small pinch at a time…
