One of the important applications of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is to delay and store light in atomic ensembles. In this paper, the noise spectrum of the delayed quantum light throughout an EIT medium is investigated. With zero detection frequency, we can have minimum noise of delayed light in two-photon resonance of EIT, and the noise is larger than the minimum noise at off two-photon resonance due to the phase-to-amplitude noise conversion. It is shown that the noise for nonzero detection frequency can be suppressed by operating the system at off two-photon resonance, even when the unavoidable dephasing is included.
