Pine Mouth

Some of you may have heard of the term “pine mouth.” This refers to the metallic taste that lingers after consumption of certain pine nuts. Over the past year we have had multiple people come in the shop who have either experienced pine mouth themselves or had close friends experience this very unpleasant sensation. The common thread between all of them was that they each consumed pine nuts that were imported from China. It is unclear as to what exactly causes this, but it is something to consider if you are on the lookout for pine nuts. We are fortunate to work with importers who support small family owned farms. Our pine nuts are of ensured quality, imported directly from Italy. We guarantee no pine mouth!
