Long Pepper fruit is one of several types of pepper used in the realm of herbalism. Somewhat more potent than Hu Jiao, it serves a very similar purpose to dispel cold and topically to relieve pain; not surprisingly, Bi Ba is classified as an interior warming herb.

Exhibiting a striking but pleasant aroma when ground, the Long Pepper fruit is acrid in flavor and hot in nature. This herb enters the Stomach and Large Intestine meridians.
