WHAT IT TASTES LIKE / FLAVOR INTENSITY:
If you've tried truffle anything before, it's a flavor you either love or you hate--no one I know has ever been ambivalent. To me, it's very earthy, and similar to an intense mushroom savoriness with a bit of roasted garlic, but that doesn't really capture what a truffle is, because "mushroom" isn't quite right either. It has a deep umami/ savory flavor that is unique. If you have ever made a beef drippings reduction it's almost savory like that is, in a concentrated, very distinct way--when you taste it, you immediately know exactly what that flavor is.
I purchased this salt as a sampler pack and the larger jar indicated here (see pictures for comparison) later after trying the different options this company offered. It says it is 5% truffle (95% salt, but doesn't indicate the breakdown of fresh or artificial flavorant that is added to intensify the flavor. The company says the black truffles used in this product are Italian in origin.
This particular brand offers a courser salt than the Salt Cellar version (see MILLING below). The truffle flavor is pretty intense when first opened, but that's fine as this is mainly SALT, it shouldn't be used in large quantities and the stronger flavor allows the truffle to come through without over salting the food you're adding it to.
