What KIND of red peppers are they?
Excellent and very hot!
Thai peppers shipped from Thailand?
I look forward to getting these, as I can’t find them around here. I’ll be sure to come back and update the rating for the actual item after I receive them. Maybe this situation is a one-off, I don’t know. Just be warned that it may take a while for this item to hit your doorstep/mailbox.
shipped 08/20/2012 via Thailandpost (pretty decent turn around considering I ordered late at night, and then there is that time difference…they show the 20th, my e-mail shows the 19th)
delivery scheduled for 09/13/2012 – 09/27/2012
Will post when item is received. Who knows, it may not take so long, just have little to no experience with items actually being sent from overseas. Heck, it may show up tomorrow for all I know.
As of 9/9/2012…no item. E-mailed seller even though I am still out of the ‘scheduled delivery’. The middle of the weekend – here and in Thailand – and had a response within two hours (impressive). No update on tracking (not sure they can really even offer that), but response was quick and courteous. AND they made me want these chiles even more…shame on them 🙂
When (and I do hope this comes to pass) I order from them again, I will order more than one package. I’m afraid of running out of these tasty little peppers. Will have to research on growing from seed 🙂
As of 9/15/2012…These little beauties arrived either 9/12 or 9/13, not sure as I don’t check my mail everyday. Well within the delivery window they stated. While I have not cooked with them yet they appear to be excellent. They look to have been nicely dried and smell awesome. 3.5 ounces should last me a while as it was more than I expected volume wise. They were indeed sent from Thailand, package was complete with ‘Customs Declaration’.
I would highly recommend this seller and this product, with the caveat that it will take time for you to receive them. If that is not an issue, DO IT!!
I’d rate these higher on the pepper scale, but not the hottest I’ve ever had. They do pack a punch!
I’d recommend these for anyone who likes Thai food.
