Tien Tsin chile peppers are named after the province of China in which they are harvested. Don't let the lovely appearance of these bright red shiny peppers fool you -- they are 8-9 on the heat scale!
These chile peppers fall under the category of "exotics," or chile peppers once more commonly grown in Asia but now popularly grown here also. They adapt themselves beautifully to the Hunan and Szechwan styles of cooking. This exceptional crop is one of the finest we have ever seen.
If you are trying to decide on the amount you need, they are very light and come dozens per ounce.
