i decided on this tea because i wanted something conforting as i have started walking on my bum foot now and it is alot of work lol. as im pouring my tea into my steeper basket im getting harassed by my cat :) i love when shes being social because shes VERY skittish and has anxiety issues. she was very interested in what i was doing so i let her sniff my tea and she let me know she didnt like it with a stinky face and become quiet :( (shes VERY vocal) i guess shes not a fan of cinnamon lol.

on to the review :)
well….this is interesting. and much different than adagios cinnamon tea. i assumed it would be like adagios so i added cream and sugar. its spicy…i didnt expect that. i enjoy the spice it makes it more interesting than adagios. more cinnamon-ie lol i am enjoying this fully :) my fiancee keeps saying this tea smells like fireballs lol i agree. this is my first Harney & Sons tea and their store/tea house is a 30 min drive north of me so i may be making a drive in the near future

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

I haven’t found a tea that a cat would seem to enjoy. I think I need something with a chicken or tuna flavor to it. Your lucky Harney & Sons is so close, you don’t have to browse through their awful website to find tea.

ive tried to go thru their website and i swear some of my brain leaked out of my right ear lol.

my cat doesn’t like anything made for human consumption, shes even stuck her nose up at salmon. she almost gets offended by my offerings lol.

Kitteh stinky face is so cute. You can almost see them going ‘eeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwtakeitawaytakeitaway!!!’ and then the offended ‘how dare you bring such vileness to my presence, human?’

Have you tried letting her sniff something minty? Mine went absolutely nuts for peppermint herbals, but catnip had no effect. Odd.

Ricky

Ummm, I should try something minty. Hey looks she’s chasing her tail right now =]

Kitch3ntools

:D i will deff try this when zoie decides to grace me with her presence :) she doesnt act like you would expect a cat to act with catnip she just eats it and rolls in it then when its gone she gos about her business :)

Ricky

Wait cats eat catnip? Haha, I thought they just sniffed at it. My cat just sniffs it and walks away. She’s a strange kitty. I’m making her my tea sniffer now, she didn’t enjoy my two rooibos teabags.

Kitch3ntools

AWW :D how old is she? if shes young then it may not do anything for her yet. yeah my cat eats it lol. my other cat Kurtis at my parents will murder for even the smallst bit of catnip he gets violent! i always let my cat sniff my food or drinks when shes around shes so nosie lol

Kitch3ntools

i love when they make that face too :D

? I’ve never had any problems with Harney & Sons’ website, what don’t you like about it?

Ricky

She’s 4.5, still really young. I have three packs of catnip and it doesn’t affect her the slightest bit. I chase her around trying to get her to eat wet food though, she hates it. She’ll keep backing up and eventually into her water fountain. She’s so silly. It’s so sad, she only wants dry food. I mix it, she won’t eat it. Argh fussy kitty.

@Jillian, Harney & Son’s website is a bit annoying to navigate.

Steps
1) Click on type of tea
2) Click on a more specific category
3) Click on the tea itself
4) Add to cart or click on the tea to get a better description (Adding to cart redirects you to the cart itself).

That’s four clicks for one tea. Adagio still has the best interface.

Yep, some cats aren’t affected by catnip at all, and others go crazy for them. My cat doesn’t care much for it (never seen her go crazy or drooly or rolly or eat it), but she seems to know that catnip smell = thing for playing with. I think she likes ziploc bags and tiny pillows filled with them because they’re light enough for her to kick around the room (her preferred way of playing).

I’ve heard of people drinking catnip tea before. It’s supposed to be relaxing… :x

my good friends cat is terrified of wet food lol where my cat demands it lol. ive only seen one cat drool over catnip. my sisters late cat “fatty” (we were children when we got her) she would drool, her nose would run and tears flowing shed make cute little happy noises too :)

i wanted to try that but i dislike the smell of fresh catnip so i was wary of it…then we had a storm and my cat nip died from the pot falling upside down and us being out of town :(

S

I’ve never smelled fresh catnip, but dried catnip smells pretty good..just not like something I’d want to drink.
