Botanically known as Pimenta dioica, the allspice powder is a ground-up  spice that is made from dried whole berries of the allspice tree.

The allspice berries look quite similar to whole peppercorns and are a  member of the myrtle family. People often confuse the allspice powder  assuming it is a blend or mixture of various other spices.

Allspice has been hugely popular in European and Mediterranean cuisines  for decades and is native to Jamaica, Guatemala, and Honduras. It is  also popularly known as "Jamaica pepper" or "new spice". Its flavour  profile tastes almost like a combination of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg,  and pepper and hence is extensively used when warmer spices are needed.  If you ever forget what this spice is like, well it's that spice that  makes everything smell like Christmas.

Christopher Columbus during his second voyage to the New World was  credited to have found and documented this spice which was then named by  Dr. Diego Chanca.
