Iced green tea with cucumber and tarragon
Per 1-1.5 liters of water:
- Fresh cucumber – 1 pc.
- Estragon (tarragon) – ½ teaspoon or 1 sprig
- Green tea – 2 pinches
Steps of cooking
Cut a fresh cucumber of small size into circles and place it in a jug. The thinner the cucumber is cut, the more distinctly its flavor will appear in the drink.
Add the estragon (tarragon) to the pitcher. It is important not to overdo it, as it has a strong taste and can overpower all other flavors.
Sprigs of fresh tarragon can be found in supermarkets. Dried tarragon in bags can be found in almost any store in the spice department.
