Spice Up Your Life : Peppercorn

Spice Up Your Life : Peppercorn

We love teas. We also love all the ingredients to go into tea. So, spice up your life is a recurring segment that will cover the spice in our life, and we hope it adds spice to your life. 


At Old Growth Beverages, we believe adding a little spice to your life can make all the difference. That's why we're excited to talk about one of our favourite spices: peppercorn.

Peppercorn is a classic spice that's been used for thousands of years in cuisines around the world. It adds a pungent, spicy flavour to savoury dishes and can even be used to add depth to sweet desserts.

Organic peppercorns are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. These can improve digestion and reduce inflammation which may help in limiting the pain related to arthritis and other joint conditions in the body and boost your immune system. They're also high in vitamin K and magnesium which helps promote heart health and bone health. Peppercorns are even thought to help in protecting us against certain types of cancer due to their rich antioxidant content. 

But coffee isn't the only way to enjoy peppercorn. Here are a few other ideas:

  • Use peppercorn to add a spicy kick to your favourite savoury dishes, like roasted chicken or grilled vegetables.
  • Mix ground peppercorn with sugar and sprinkle it over fresh fruit for a surprising twist on a classic dessert.
  • Add a pinch of ground peppercorn to your favourite hot chocolate recipe for a warming and indulgent treat.


Of course, there are countless other ways to use peppercorns in the kitchen. Experiment with different recipes and find your own favourite way to enjoy this versatile spice.

At Old Growth Beverages, we're proud to use only certified organic ingredients in our coffee blends, including peppercorn. We believe that quality ingredients make all the difference when it comes to flavour and health benefits.

So why not spice up your life with a cup of coffee infused with peppercorn?


Whether you're looking for a bold, flavorful coffee or a way to add a little spice to your favourite dishes, peppercorn is sure to delight your senses and bring a little extra joy to your day.
