In a cocktail shaker, combine the tea, simple syrup, lemon, cucumber and jalapeño juices. Shake and strain over ice into a Tom Collins glass. Garnish with the cucumber slices and mint.

Adapted from a recipe by Christiaan Rollich, head barman, AOC and Lucques. To make the simple syrup, place one healthy bunch of wild arugula with 4 cups of simple syrup in a blender, then strain through a chinois.
