Once dried, the berries become black peppercorns with a pungent, fiery flavor.   An aromatic, pungent, warming herb that lowers fever and improves digestion. Black pepper contains essential oil (up to 3.5%) and 5 - 10% pungent acid-amides with piperine as well as piperyline, piperoleines and piperamine, while the oil contains sabinene, pinene, phellandrene, linalool and limonene.
