There's no real right or wrong answer here, it's totally subjective as I have no idea what you'd consider "too peppery". I like pepper so too peppery for me is a lot, whereas some of my family can't tolerate any heat, so too peppery is basically the merest hint. I'll try and scale it for you depending on how much heat tolerance you (or your guests) will have:
I like pepper and spicy food, but I don't like dishes with too much pepper flavor, it can be way too strong. I stop at maybe 7-8 peppercorns and if I want more heat add chili.
