Tellicherry pepper is one of the highest grades of black pepper and is
harvested along the Malabar coast of India.  Another high quality
peppercorn is Lampong.  They are both the dried, slightly underripe berries
which grow in grape-like clusters on the climbing vine Piper nigrum.

Good luck with the inspection!
