Carefully sort lentils and rinse thoroughly. Bring 6 cups water to a boil in saucepan. Slowly stir in lentils. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until lentils are still firm but cooked through. Do not overcook. Drain lentils and rinse with cold water. Season with salt. Refrigerate until cool.
Add lentils to remaining 2 cups water, 2 cups sour cream, lemon juice and tarragon. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into chilled soup bowls.
Garnish with remaining sour cream and chervil sprigs and serve.
