Black Truffles from sub-Himalayan Asia (T. indicum, T. sinensis or T. himalayensis) are commonly known as "Chinese Truffles".
While Chinese truffles are less pungent than the European truffle, they can still be a good - and affordable - choice for truffle lovers on a budget.
The overall quality of Chinese truffles has improved enormously in recent years and many experienced truffle lovers have become fans of this less expensive member of the truffle family.
Very similar in appearance and flavor to the European Summer Truffle (t. aestivum) and the Burgundy Truffle (t. uncinatum), the Chinese truffle is worthy of consideration and should not to be dismissed as inferior.
Frozen Truffles retain much of their flavor, but may suffer some loss of fresh truffle texture. Frozen Truffles are still an excellent choice for enjoying truffle flavor when fresh truffles are out of season.
