So December was recently updated, It was delicious before and i thought it was perfect until I had the updated version.
It is outstanding!!!
First let me say that the Fujian Black is one of my favorites, it is right up on the shelf with my all time favorite Black Pearls(not WP). Everything that Brenden blends using the FB so far is always delicious to me.
In this one now I can taste the FB much more, it is made a little less smokey now and has Pine Peak Keemun which is another that I also like very much.
It is chocolaty, sweet, floral, brisk, smokey, malty, a bit fruity extremely smooth…
It has the pleasant dryness on the end like the Pine Peak Keemun that I just love and the boldness of the FB and omg It is just awesome.
I think this may be another new favorite for me (you can never have too many favorite teas, i have lots), This one will most likely go right up on the shelf beside the FB and I ‘ll probably never tire of it, I will be getting more of the new December very soon I may even just have to buy lots of it like i did the FB.
Alls I got this time around was a sample and I could kick myself in the butt now for not getting a couple ounces of it.
Looking at what I’ve written so far i think i mentioned FB too much lol Sorry its just that i can taste the FB so much more in this one now, am i liking this one better? i dunno maybe so, maybe I like them both the same, its hard to say.
If you’ve had the older version of December please do try this one too it is just too good.
Brenden at Whispering Pines makes such good teas it is hard for me not to love them all, I think I do love them all lol. Lance tells me that I should just give up on all other tea companies and just buy from only WP which i honestly think I could be perfectly fine with that but I just love teas so much and right now i still have so many other favorite teas from other places to consider that but I do plan on chilling out for a bit and cutting back to just only buying from 2 or 3 favorite tea vendors very soon, its just easier said than done for me, when that happens WP will be #1. I have already cut back on the amount of teas that I normally buy from other places just so I have more money to spend at WP and that is very easy because I love Brenden’s teas so much, I think Brenden has great taste in teas and he is very good at what he does, I can’t express enough how glad I am to have discovered WP or how much I appreciate the work that he does with his wonderful tea creations.
If you are on steepster and you haven’t tried a Whispering Pines tea I do hope you will give them a try soon, you may be surprised and find yourself a new favorite tea there too.
Sorry i didn’t mean for this to be a review of FB or of WP but it kinda looks to have turned out that way, i’m a little tea drunk right now and it is pretty late lol.

Fijian Black base is very chocolaty but not bitter. Very good.

I adore your review Tommy!! You and I are going through the same “tea phase” it seems. I also have narrowed down the companies I order from…I have LOTS of favourites too (many are from WP now) and I’d rather focus on those instead of just randomly order teas I end up not caring much about…haven’t tried December yet, but now I know I will.
And I’m a big fan of FB also :-)

Very nice review Tommy – I agree and I love that FB too!

yep, no bitter at all even with a nice long steep FB base tea is Excellent, very good in this December.
I love cooking with Tea Also, I make a really yummy chocolate cobbler that I used a nice Lapsang Souchong in to add a little smokey note. I will be trying it with this December next time, as I was drinking it I couldn’t help but to imagine how delightful it would be for cooking with. I may even create a whole new recipe in the kitchen just for this one.
