Catnip, also known as catmint, is a member of the mint family and has long been used in cooking and as an herbal tea. Although its use has diminished in recent history, catnip is still used in Italy in salads, soups, egg dishes, and stuffings for vegtables.
The taste is pungently mint-like with a bitter note; use sparingly when cooking.
To brew tea use 1 rounded tablespoon per 12 ounces of water.
If buying for your feline friend, be assured this is one of the strongest varieties available on the market!
