How it tastes
Sweet, creamy custard with warming notes of cinnamon and clove: just like a rich and lightly spiced eggnog
Frightful weather ahead? Warm up with this delightfully creamy green tea. With festive notes of white chocolate, cinnamon, clove and custard, it’s the perfect way to add a touch of cozy to your day. Serve it straight up in a teapot big enough to share or spiked with brandy for a spicy winter warmer. Not cozy enough? Try it as a frothy tea latte.
What makes it great
• It just wouldn’t be the holidays without eggnog! This festive green tea adds a delicious spicy twist to the classic drink.
• We love it as a frothy tea latte with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Day 7 of my DIY 24 Days of DAVIDsTea!
Let It Snow is great in theory; a festive blend inspired by eggnog – sweet, creamy, and spiced. It had so much potential, but here, the stevia is overwhelming in its cloying sweetness. And as much as I’d like to enjoy this one, ultimately, it’s not worth the stevia induced headache.
I didn’t enjoy this last year, and while I’m bumping my rating up to better match my personal scale, I don’t think my opinion changed much.
I’ve never had an eggnog so I can’t say anything about how close it might be to that flavor. I smell warm winter spices but taste sweetness and cream more than the spice. I would rather have more spice and less sweet, but this is okay for an infrequent cup.
DAVIDsTEA advent, day 12
Flavors: Artificial, Cream, Spices, Sweet
I’ve been avoiding this for awhile because of the stevia, but decided to finally cave. It smells festive and creamy. As expected, the stevia overwhelms the tea. There is a custardy quality, with lots of clove and nutmeg. Seems like something I would like if the stevia wasn’t getting in the way. Had to dump.
The taste, however, is another story. Honestly, taste-wise, I’m not a huge fan of Let it Snow. I enjoy a good cup of Eggnog every now and then during the winter season, but there’s something about this tea that just turns me off. The first time I ever tried Let it Snow was back when I worked at DAVIDsTEA, my coworker suggested trying it as an iced latte, and in that form I absolutely loved it. Since then, however, I find that when I try and enjoy this Christmas classic, the thick texture of the steeped milk ingredients throws the best elements of the flavor off, not allowing me to enjoy it. Not enjoying Let it Snow saddens me because I love the idea of it and separately I love each ingredient within the blend, it’s putting them together that makes me feel this tea is subpar.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Eggnog, Milk
This tea is great, very sweet. The strongest elements of flavor are the cinnamon and clove. Tastes good with milk or with a spoon of brown sugar. Would recommend to those who enjoy very sweet teas and dessert teas. I think this tea is good for 1-2 cups, but any more than that might be too much sweetness. Note: there is no peppermint flavor in this tea at all.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Sugar, Sweet, Vanilla
(DavidsTea already recorded)
First tea I drank post-partum (I brought six thermoses of teas)! And it was pretty satisfying – the spicing is pretty tasty and eggnoggy here, but I could use more creaminess. I’ve noticed that resteeps of this tea take on an interesting and different flavour though, perhaps because the spicing is mostly in the first cup, and there’s more fruitiness in the second?
Also, to expand on the above – yes, I’m now 6 days into being a mommy to a very sweet little daughter, and big brother is, at this point, still over the moon about his new little sister. It’s an adventure already!
Since this is listed as a green tea on the site, I was expecting the liquor to be that signature color, and was surprised to find it looking more like a white tea would, not to mention I couldn’t find much green tea leaves in the bag. I can see the matcha however, and taste it very slightly, though after steeping it settled to the bottom of my teacup. All that picky stuff aside, this is a wonderful tea. The scent of the leaves is sweet, creamy, and highly reminiscent of eggnog. The taste is not much different. If you don’t like your tea too heavily sweet, you won’t find an issue with this one. Some dessert teas make you feel like you’ve just dumped a tablespoon of sugar in your mouth, but this is not one of those. Needs no sweetener either :]
