Unless mentioned in the episode, this tea is not necessarily made by the Valerians. It could be made out of valerian root, a (non-fictional) plant. - Montrealais
- As this tea exists and is a herbal remedy for sleep problems that appears to work AFP without any problems or side effects. I would say that this tea was NOT made by the Valerian people in ST:TNG. 18.104.22.168 06:57, 23 April 2006 (UTC)
- In real life, valerian preparations have a mild, non-addicting sedative effect, and thus the herb is commonly used in herbal sleeping aids, including teas, capsules and liquid extracts.
