|Description: Pepper was one of the East India Company's earliest imports into London. Most was obtained from trading centres along the Eastern coast of India and Bantam in the Spice Islands (Indonesia). What was a basic culinary ingredient in Asia was a rare and exotic luxury in London and the value of the pepper increased enormously.|
