Sechuan Buttons® is the name for an edible flower. For some people, the taste of the Sechuan Button, resembles an ‘electric’ shock. It starts with a champagne-like sensation at the top of the tongue. Then it moves around in the mouth. A kind of ‘anaesthetic’ feeling in the cheeks, a numb sensation followed by a saliva flush. Within a minute, however, this negative feeling is replaced by curiosity and the analysis of the different sensations, finally resulting in amazement.
