Taste and usage
Sechuan Cress® is the Koppert Cress brand name for an edible plant. A green leaf, which creates a light sparkling (champagne) to anaesthetic sensation in the mouth. It has no taste, nor does it influence the taste, but it is an experience, a real attention hiker! Sechuan Cress is a great addition to cocktails, fruit juices, amuses-bouches, and sorbets. It stimulates the appetite and cleanses the palate.

Sechuan Cress has been developed from the plant that produces the Sechuan Button, the effect however is much milder. The plant which has its origen in Africa and South America, when those two continents where still connected. Now it is only found in specific areas of Africa. The name Sechuan Buttons was chosen because of its flavour, which is comparable to the Sechuan Pepper.
