Vicious arguments, economics, and trade regulations ensured that cubeb pepper would lose the pepper war to black pepper. Also known as Java pepper and tailed pepper - due to it being native to Java and the berry's pericarp tapering off into a stubby tail - the cubeb pepper is a little known ingredient that's slowly being rediscovered by spice enthusiasts.
A member of the pepper family, cubeb has a peppery, bitter, pungent flavor that's tinged with a hint of allspice and nutmeg. It's used in some Iraqi, Moroccan, Australian, and Middle Eastern cuisines and is the pepper of choice in Indonesia and Malaysia. In Europe and the Americas it's rare to ever see it used in the kitchen. However, it is used extensively in cigarettes and gin. Cubeb pepper, these days, is the peppercorn of the hipster chef and home cook as this particular berry is still totally underground.
