Great Product And Service
The grains of paradise I ordered are excellent. It smelled amazing when I opened the bag. I put it in a pepper grinder to use. My only complaint is that you have to use a lot in order to to really taste it.

Love Grains Of Paradise
You sent me a free packet of Grains of Paradise a couple of years ago to try and I fell in love with it. I am a great lover of pepper and this is the best. I often mix it with regular pepper corns for people who don't like pepper too spicy and get really good feedback from my guests.

Grains Of What???
Sorry, but I didn't care for this spice. It was simply SUPER HOT on the tongue with absolutely no other flavor present. Pretty pointless, IMHO.

The service was excellent and the product arrived promptly. The spice does not live up to its description and seems a little stale. Perhaps i misunderstood the description.

Fun!
We had a lot of fun asking for the Grains of Paradise instead of the Pepper. It has a nice flavor will definitely buy again.

Grains Of Paradise
I bought a small amount of ground Grains of Paradise and a good quantity of whole. The ground spice was lovely added to foods but, when I crushed my own, the flavor was outstanding! I've even taken a whole seed to chew on and love the burst of heat and subtle aromas. This article in the NY Times piqued my interest enough to explore the spice. I'm so glad to have found it at My Spice Sage! http://www.nytimes.com/2000/05/03/dining/what-peppercorns-only-dream-of-being.html?src=pm&pagewanted=1

My New 'go To!'
Grains of Paradise is our new go to when we want a little change from black pepper. I actually have put it in a little pepper mill and keep in on the table along with salt and pepper. The slight difference in flavor really comes through on lighter foods like chicken or fish.

Everything I Hoped For
My mother is not allowed to eat any kind of pepper, for medical reasons, not even bell peppers. This spice gives a nice pepper taste but is not a member of the pepper family. Shipping and notifications were outstanding, the spices I ordered along with these Grains of Paradise were fresh and flavorful.

Always High Quality
Haven't tried it yet, but am confident that it will be of the highest quality. The spices from My Spice Sage are always fresh and flavorful. Could never go back to stale, tasteless grocery store spices.

Intriguing Flavor
Grains of Paradise is a completely different sort of pepper. Tiny peppercorns almost crumble in the grinding process. The flavor is delightful. Not very hot, but definitely peppery.

Nice Product
This is the second time I've ordered from spice sage and the product was second to none. The only reason for three stars was that it took 3 weeks to get to my house. It was in Arizona for 1.5 weeks according to shipping updates and I live in ny. Other than that excellent place to find hard to get spices. Thank you.

I Have A Rare Allergy
I have a rare allergy to black pepper(as well as all pepper from the same plant.) Grains of Paradise is the first replacement I have found that comes close to the taste, and aroma of black pepper.

Starts Out With A Lite,
Starts out with a lite, fresh taste, & then in a few seconds the spicy, peppery taste comes through. I very much can see why people would use this instead of black pepper. Great flavor.

I'm Allergic To Tradition
I'm allergic to traditional black, white pepper. This is a great substitute.
