Catnip Tea for Two


In the 1600s, catnip tea infusions were a common way for people to relax and unwind after a long day. We’re bringing it back with new, catnip tea pyramids sourced from a certified organic farm. Enjoy a cup for yourself and cool one down for your cats for a special tea time ritual with you and your fur babies.

Catnip Tea for Two
Brewing Instructions

Pour 8 oz of near-boiling water over one tea pyramid per cup. Steep for 4-6 minutes for cats. Steep up to 10-15 minutes for yourself if you prefer a stronger taste.

  • For Cats: COOL TEA COMPLETELY before serving as the occasional treat. Do not add lemon or milk to their serving.
  • For Persons: After brewing, try adding a touch of fresh lemon juice to bring out the natural minty flavor. Alternatively, a splash of milk goes nicely.
Tasting Notes
  • Medium bodied, earthy tea with amber color and spearmint aroma.
  • Pairs well with a splash of milk or try it with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to bring out the natural spearmintiness. (Do not add anything to your cat’s serving, as it may irritate their stomach.)
  • Enjoy close to bedtime as the nepetalactone in catnip may cause relaxation and drowsiness in people.

Fun Facts
  • Nepetalactone is the essential oil in catnip notorious for making cats go wild, yet it calms people.
  • Known for its relaxing qualities, people actually consumed catnip tea for years before it fell out of popularity. According to the The Canadian Veterinary Journal, catnip’s propensity to calm the nerves made it a popular tea in the 1600s and was given to treat conditions such as “nervous headaches, hysteria, and insanity.”
  • Catnip is an herb and proud member of the mint family.
  • Only about 50% of cats react to catnip, and that reaction is typically caused when they sniff it. Eating or drinking catnip can actually have the opposite effect and mellow your kitty out.
Safety Guidelines
  • Teabags are NOT intended for your cats to use as a toy. We have catnip toys for that.
  • Do not drink if you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • While catnip is safe for cats, consult your veterinarian to make sure it’s OK for yours
