Chao Tian Chillies


Chao Tian Chillies by Hatton Hill. Grown, harvested and dried in China. Packed in the UK.

In Chinese, “chao tian” means “facing heaven”, which is an apt description of these spicy peppers for two reasons – first, these chillies grow pointing towards the sky, and second, they’re a heavenly ingredient for cooking, with a fragrance and heat that has made them a staple in China’s Sichuan Province, which is famous worldwide for its delicious, spicy cuisine. They’re medium-hot, with a Scoville heat scale rating of 10,000-50,000 units (by comparison, the mild jalapeño chillies served up in Mexican restaurants typically rate 2,500-8,000 units), and a versatile ingredient not just in Chinese-style dishes, but in anything that requires a light touch of freshness and piquancy. They’re perfect in stir-fries, stunning in sauces, and ideal for making your own chilli oil.
