Frightful weather ahead? Slip on your favourite ugly sweater and 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 sweet and spicy winter warmer. Not cozy enough for you? Whip it up as a latte and top with an extra dash of cinnamon or nutmeg. It’ll nog your socks off!

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.

David’s Tea Advent Day 1. I knew with three advents I was going to get behind quickly!

I genuinely didn’t know this was a green tea until I read the profile. I think there’s just too much going on here in addition to the tea. With one perfect spoon in 8 oz, it makes a rather weak brew that still somehow manages to be extremely sweet. I definitely get the white chocolate/custard vibe up front, with just the barest hint of spice that I can’t quite discern. This was fun to taste and I wouldn’t turn down a cup, but it’s not for me.

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.

I loved this tea, one of my favorites from the years I started drinking tea via DT. I have a decent amount in my giant black plastic bin of holiday teas, wonder how I would feel now that I drink all kinds of different brands and types of tea (including traditional/straight).

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.

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.

Nutmeg flavour green tea, good with cream, reminds me of eggnog.

Sipdown! 254/365!

I think, in my head, I had lumped this tea in with other ‘snow’ teas that are minty, so assumed it was minty and not something I’d like. However, it smells quite yummy, and I see that the flavour combo has zero mint, and some potential, especially since it mentions custard (mmmm)!

Brewed up, the tea is reminiscent of Christmas and holiday times, so it does feel a little odd to be drinking it on a day where I took the baby to an outdoor pool (a very summer event). I think it’s the clove that’s doing it, though it’s not overly strong. Other than that, the tea is sweet and creamy. Actually quite pleasant, and kind of a nice alternative to the classic Christmas spice blend (with or without oranges).

It’s supposed to be loosely eggnog inspired ;)

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 :]
