Szechuan pepper or Sichuan Pepper is an essential spice used in Asian cuisines. It is known for the mouth-tingling sensation it leaves and its distinct fragrant aroma, which resembles that of lavender.

It is mostly ground or roasted before adding to dishes or infused with oil and salt for a savoury seasoning.
Zizira’s natural cinnamon spice is sourced from the pristine hills of Meghalaya, free of chemical impurities. This cinnamon bark is obtained from a tree called Casia. The bark is manually peeled, and sun-dried naturally before storage.
Cinnamon bark is known for its sweet and woody fragrance and has been used as a popular spice since olden times that is used to enhance the taste of both sweet and savory dishes.
