Tianjin Chillies are the ideal chillies for use in all kinds of barbeques and spice rubs. They pack a high level of heat, which gets brought out even more with intensely hot cooking methods. Start enjoying the high heat that Chinese cooks have been for centuries, or use in western cooking to experience a new excitement in barbeques that you didn't even know was possible!

Powder: Powder will be light red colour. For a dark red colour powder, we suggest buying our Spicy Chilli powder instead for most similar flavour profile.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.

Totally addicted to its spiciness! Since ghost peppers are rather unaffordable (yes I'm a peasant), this Tianjin chilli is an excellent substitute.
