    This pepper is commonly used in the cuisine of China's southwestern Sichuan Province. It is commonly used in Sichuan dishes such as mapo doufu and Chongqing hot pot, and is often added together with chili peppers to create a flavor known as málà.
     
    Sichuan pepper is not a true peppercorn. It is the dried rind of the berry-like fruit of the prickly ash tree. It is a basic ingredient of Chinese five-spice powder. The taste has been compared to lime zest combined with black pepper, cardamom and hot peppers.

    From Wikipedia:

    Sichuan pepper's unique aroma and flavour is not hot or pungent like black, white, or chili peppers. Instead, it has slight lemony overtones and creates a tingly numbness in the mouth (caused by its 3% of hydroxy alpha sanshool) that sets the stage for hot spices. According to Harold McGee in On Food and Cooking, they are not simply pungent; "they produce a strange, tingling, buzzing, numbing sensation that is something like the effect of carbonated drinks or of a mild electric current (touching the terminals of a nine-volt battery to the tongue).
