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.
