Szechuan pepper is a Chinese spice popular in China used in Hot Pots and other dishes where its potent spiciness can be showcased. Szechuan pepper has a bite that starts out somewhat similar to black pepper but almost numbs the tongue and creates a unique flavor and sensation that sets it aside from other spices in its ability to make or break a dish.
