Don’t hesitate to discover why Timut Bay is an ideal bay for cocktails. Because it offers a unique sensation on the tongue and lips, a slight tingling and a surge of flavors. 


What is Timut pepper? It is simply a false pepper that grows on a shrub, precisely on the shrub of the Zanthoxylum armatum species. This exquisite spice is native to the highlands of Nepal, where it can grow wild in  the foothills of the Himalayas, between 800 and 3000 meters above sea level, in the Mahabharat region . This fascinating plant has more than  2000 years of history to its credit, particularly in its region of origin, the Mahabharat mountain range.

Timut  is distinguished by its interior seed, hard and bitter , but we only eat the pericarp which contains an incomparable flavor . This berry, sometimes called Timur berry , is prized in Nepalese cuisine and has won over many great chefs today, because of its unique aromatic notes . These are the berries at the moment and essential components of creative cuisine .

One of the most striking characteristics of Timut is its complex flavor, naturally combining a touch of pink grapefruit with nuances of citrus . This unique combination makes it a versatile spice capable of enhancing a variety of dishes.

Although it may have visual similarities with Sichuan , it is essential to note that Sichuan is red in color, while Timut Bay is smaller and sports a distinct brown hue. This visual specificity contributes to its recognition and appreciation in the world of gastronomy.

  • Good to know It is part of the Zanthoxylum armatu species, it is a Sichuan bay pepper which belongs to the Zanthoxylum piperitum species.

What does timut berry taste like?

When you bring this precious Timut berry close to your nose, a captivating fruity aroma escapes, instantly transporting you to a citrus garden. The citrus notes are the first to appear, evoking the freshness of flowering lemons bathed in sunlight.

But the taste story of Timut Bay does not end there. She stands out for her unexpected role, because, despite her nickname "grapefruit pepper" , she still has surprises in store. Once crushed , it releases notes of pink grapefruit which dance delicately on your palate, bringing a subtle touch of acidity and sweetness. However, keep in mind that it can also have a numbing effect .

Where other peppers simply spice up your dishes, Timut berry offers a complete sensory experience. It adds a unique dimension to your culinary creations, with notes of red pepper that blend harmoniously with its already rich citrus aromatic profile.

However, we advise you to keep its subtle aroma in cooking. Being subtle, it can accompany many dishes.

Chef Arnaud of Apogée bar tells you that the taste of Timut berry is a real adventure for the taste buds, a taste exploration that skillfully combines fruitiness, the freshness of citrus fruits, and the subtleties of red pepper. A must-see discovery for lovers of exquisite flavors.

It is one of the essentials of Nepalese cuisine , a berry that must be present on all market stalls and in all kitchens.

  •  But be careful not to add too much, because it can bring great bitterness to your creative cuisine like cubebe pepper


Timut, a precious spice originating from traditional Nepalese cuisine, finds its essence in the lands of Terai , the birthplace of the Buddha. We discover it proudly displayed on the market stalls of the Kathmandu valley and inserted with creativity in the kitchens of the greatest chefs in the world. They know how to appreciate the complexity of its aromas , its freshness, its lightness and above all, its unparalleled versatility.

This close cousin of pepper lends itself to use in cooking in all its forms: ground, crushed, pounded, grilled, infused , etc. But timut is not a pepper. The use of pepper is sometimes complex and here you must follow the same methods.

This bay is the ideal partner to bring your most daring creations to life. Its subtle aroma of grapefruit, lemon and yuzu pairs harmoniously with a variety of foods, whether as a starter, main course or dessert.

We particularly love it in stews and scallops. We use it for the candied lemon recipe. It is a use similar to that of pepper. 

To awaken your taste buds in a savory version, subtly add a delicious fruity note to your fish and seafood, such as lobsters, scallops or razor clams. It also goes perfectly with beef carpaccio, coconut chicken, duck breast or fried vegetables. A simple rotation of the mill at the end of cooking is enough to release its full potential. You can also infuse a few seeds into a sauce, marinade or soup, the result is a real treat.

As savory appetizers, we offer you two aperitif recipes using Timut pepper: the delicious pepper tiles and the pepper party toasts . We advise you to favor crushed berries to fully appreciate the power of its aromas.

In a sweet version, give a boost to your fruit salads, compotes (apples, apricots, etc.), or pan-fried mango by adding a small quantity of Timut pepper.

In baking, this spice also finds its place of honor. It wonderfully enhances dark chocolate-based preparations, whether for muffins, mousse, fondant or tuiles, to name just a few examples. For those with a sweet tooth, we offer you the delicious recipe for Timut chocolate and pepper mousse cake/log .

Finally, for an exotic touch during your tea time, do not hesitate to flavor your teas and infusions with a few Timur berries. In short, Timut from Nepal is an essential companion to your creative cooking, whether used in crushed, pounded, ground, cracked or grilled form. It can be used in all your recipes, whether sweet or savory, from cocktails to drinks, from starters to desserts, and even in fruit salads. Its use is a true taste journey, an invitation to explore the infinitely rich universe of Timut Bay.

You see how a small berry of wild origin in the mountain range which has been harvested by hand for more than 2000 years in the most remote areas, is a prodigious berry and the reference in traditional Nepalese cuisine and in the creative cuisine of Comptoir de Toamasina and at Apogée Bar.
