Daily Photo: Catnip Tea?!

You have your own stash of catnip–for TEA??!!!

You made tea out of perfectly good catnip?

And what’s worse:


I can’t believe you would betray us this way—a jar full of the best leaf in the house, and you keep it to yourself, and you make TEA?!

. . . . . . .

Yes, I do have a stash of dried catnip leaves that I use in herbal decoctions for myself.

I wasn’t going to hear the end of it until I shared some.

    oh, I so remember a pot of cat nip tea that I have at an OSU coffee house run by a coven of witches (!!!)…I also remember being too mellow by half. My friends were most amused as it’s the most cat-like i’ve ever been. thanks for the reminder!

      Back in the day, right Sparky? Too bad I had to share my stash.

    What a good Mommy to share. We never knew (nor did Mom) that humans used catnip. Hope all the kitties enjoyed it. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josettte

      Janet, it has a calming effect on humans much like chamomile, and it has a nice minty flavor. That’s good enough for me–I don’t need a psychedelic experience in the middle of the day!
