To make a cup of catnip tea, place 1-2 tsp of dried catnip flowers and leaves in a teacup and pour a cup of hot, not boiling water, and cover. Wait 10-15 minutes and sweeten with honey and lemon to mitigate the slightly-woodsy taste. If you use fresh catnip leaves, double the amount used. You can also also mix catnip leaves with chamomile or mint.

Location and Care.
Hardy zones 3-9. Its not a fussy plant and lemon catmint will grow well in almost any kind of soil provided it is not waterlogged. It does best in moderately rich well drained sandy soil where it will produce the most essential oil. These oils tend to be inhibited in heavy soil that drains more slowly.
It prefers to be in full sun but can tolerate some partial shade. Although catmint likes to be watered once established it will tolerate fairly dry periods. This mint is far more drought tolerant than other mints and will manage fairly well provided there is enough rain. However if the plant is being grown for its leaves then water and weekly fertilizer is recommended to obtain the most leaf growth for harvesting. A soaker hose at the base is ideal. Varieties include  var.  (or  subsp. ), or "lemon catnip".[]Lemon Catnip - 4 Plants - Nepeta citrata - CAT'S LOVE IT!⟹ CATNIP OR LEMON BALM! DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE? TAKE A LOOK IN 720P
Description:
A hardy perennial growing up to four feet in height and a sister variety to the common catmint. It has a similar habit but this one has lemon scented leaves. Dying down in the winter this perennial sends up shoots of aromatic mid to light green triangular shaped leaves with serrated edges and a very light down. Stems are much branched and square like all those in the mint family. In early summer flower stalks rise from the ends of the stems in dense whorls arranged in little circular 'clumps' along the top length of the stem. Each flower is small, whitish or pale pink in color and dotted with red spots. Flowers bloom in each 'clump' all along the stem at the same time, so not all flowers in a clump bloom at the same time allowing the plant to be in bloom and produce interest for a much longer period of time. Our conclusion is that whatever is in normal catmint is not in the lemon one. For this reason we do not recommend that this plant be used instead of catmint in any herbal remedies with the expectation of the same results. It is likely that this plant does not contain the same compounds. Considering the aroma on catmint it is unlikely that the lemon is just masking the usual aroma it is replacing it.Aroma and plant differences from normal catmint/catnip.
Unlike normal catmint (catnip) this plant has a pleasant lemon scent. This does not appear to be a overtone that masks the normal catmint odor. In most description of this plant on the internet it appears to be listed just like normal catmint with the same descriptions uses and cat loves. We are not sure if this is because its just cloned or because no one has observed the plant.
Our experience is that the plant is treated quite differently. We have ours growing our main field unprotected. The deer and rabbits don't eat it, not a surprise since they don't eat the other lemon scented plants either.
Cats ignore it. We have to grow our catmint inside our deer protected area not to keep out the deer but to keep out the cats. We have one cat and there are many in the area, they don't touch the lemon catnip at all. When offered the dried leaf they just sniff and walk away, no interest. So don't grow this for your cat.
Ants seem to like it. There are many reports of ants being repelled by catmint, we have not seen any on ours or around it and since we are on sandy soil we get a LOT of ants. The lemon catmint is different, the decided to nest right underneath a few of the plants and seem to be running around the rest of it. - Lemon catnip: very similar to common catnip, but smells like lemon; it is less attractive to cats and also gives you a lovely lemony tea.
