Sorry for coming in late on the subject.

Ran across these little guys whilst in China 3 years ago.
They are not properly classified as a pepper, but more so as a 
"peppercorn."  They =do= have the effect of numbing the tongue when very 
fresh, with a strong citrus flavor.  Not particurally warm, but it is a 
strange effect!

Still have some in the freezer from Shanghai, and they keep well that way, 
although the citrus flavor fades quickly.

Take care.....from Kurt (CH#1155) in Angleton, Tejas.
