These shinus peppercorns have a pine-like flavor which resembles Juniper and is different from true Pink Pepper. 

Although a peppercorn is the dried fruit of a plant from the genus Piper, pink peppercorns came to be called such because they resemble peppercorns, and because they, too, have a peppery flavor.

These berries are grown primarily in the Brazilian state of Espirto Santo, located along the southeast coast just north of Rio de Janeiro.

From a small mastic-tree, the little green berries grow in tiny clusters of white flowers that form in autumn, becoming bright red before harvesting.
