How to Make Tea with Catnip

Catnip Herbal Tea Recipe

To make yourself a nice cup of catnip herbal tea, you need to obtain some fresh organic catnip. My favorite supplier for this is Mountain Rose Herbs. Most of their herbs are certified organic and you can buy just a little or a whole bunch of any of their herbs depending on your needs. To visit them, click the banner below.

Catnip Tea

Once you have the catnip, here is how you make the tea:

  • 1 Teaspoon Organic Catnip
  • 1 Cup fresh boiled Water

You can of course double or triple the recipe. You simply place the catnip in an infuser in a teapot, and pour the boiled water over. Let this steep for 5-10 minutes.

Pour and enjoy.

Buy Catnip

You may be able to pick up catnip in a variety of places, however finding certified catnip for use as a herbal tea ingredient can be more difficult. Mountain Rose Herbs is our recommended supplier.

Catnip Teabags

You can also purchase catnip herbal tea in a convenient teabag if you are in a rush and don't want to use organic catnip.

While steeping your own herbal teas is always better, some people prefer the ease of using a teabag. Here are a few options.
