Remove pit and roughly chop most of the peaches. Set aside one peach for garnish and slice into half-moons.
Add chopped peaches a small pot set over medium-high heat. Add sugar and some water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat slightly and let simmer for approx. 10 min., stirring occasionally, and lightly mashing the peaches with a muddler to help release their flavor. Remove peach syrup from heat, strain the mixture and reserve the liquid. Let cool.
In the meantime, boil water in a kettle or on the stove. Place tea bags, sprigs of mint, and lemon peels in a jug and pour the boiling water over. Let sit for approx. 5 min. Remove tea bags, lemon peels, and mint. Allow to cool slightly.
Prepare a large pitcher with ice, more mint sprigs, and remaining sliced peach. Pour in iced water, followed by the cooled tea, peach syrup, and lemon juice. Stir well. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
