Hello Friends,

As I said, I went and came right away :) I have a sweet tiredness and sadness on me. It wasn't easy to give up a daughter… Although we are consoled that we didn't give birth to a daughter, we took a son, but it was a very strange feeling. What can we say, may God keep you happy and happy for a lifetime.

Today, I decided to adapt the wonderful recipe that my dear Sinem shared with me almost 6 months ago and share it with you. Since I don't use sugar anymore, I used sweetener when I was preparing it, but you can add sugar as you wish.

summer recipes

I said that I would share the e-mail he sent when he shared his recipe with me. Maybe he thought it was a joke (deeply ehehehe).

I am obsessed with this schedule. I used my own grown mints, which have been waiting for this day for a long time. Now I leave the floor to Sinem.


"Yesterday we talked, I thought I'd tell you the recipe, maybe you can make it and write it ;)

You brew green tea first, it can be a powdered green tea or a bud-shaped one like in the Far East countries. But the buds seemed to me a lot of algae. The most beautiful ones with jasmine and lemon… Bergamot is a bit heavy, not spacious. Mint also suppresses green tea, mint is like lemon :)

Anyway, according to your mind, you brew a pot of green tea with a green tea, however you like. About 3 tablespoons of green tea is enough for a 1,5 liter pitcher or something. You brew it with boiling water and wait for it to brew for 10 minutes. If it takes 10 minutes, it gets painful, be careful :)

In the meantime, you need to squeeze the juice of 1-2 lemons. Don't throw away your shells. They will be needed.


Strain the brewed tea into the jug. Put granulated sugar in it (it's still hot, mix the sugar well.) Adjust the taste yourself, I don't like it too sweet 5-6 tablespoons of sugar is enough. Put the lemon juice you squeezed into the tea with sugar.

Everything is still hot now… It needs to be cooled by shock… Otherwise, its color becomes blurred. Pour cold water and ice from the refrigerator until the pitcher is full. It cools suddenly. That's the thing.

Then put the rind of that lemon in it, if you want 1-2 leaves of fresh mint (it doesn't overpower its taste). Put it in the fridge. min. It should wait 4-5 hours. Lemon rinds and mints turn out of style while waiting inside. Take them out. Put it with a nice lemon slice, ice in the glass with a slice of fresh mint and lemon.

I usually do it every morning in the summer, drink it in the afternoon :)

It's that easy :)

Oh, I also made this with sage or something, sage raises blood pressure, but be careful :) I made it with pomegranate leaves, but it is sour by itself, I did not add lemon. Its color is also red :) The roses we saw yesterday may be legendary, but it may be like rose water sherbet, I don't know :)

Let's see if you'll like it :) "

    Ms. Nilay, how would it be if we used honey instead of sugar or sweetener?

      Hello Zeynep, it will affect its taste and color. Of course, try it if you want, maybe you will find something that suits your taste. Yours sincerely

    So how much can we store in the cupboard? For example, can we make a lot and drink it for a week?

    It looks very nice :)

    I wonder how it would be if he made his peaches by squeezing them in a juicer??

    • On June 07, 2012 at 14:06 PM

      After squeezing, I think you need to strain it well to separate it from the pulp. I think it would be delicious :)
