Method

  1. Stone and thinly slice the peaches. Put two-thirds in a large heatproof jug with the teabags and sugar and pour over 750ml boiling water. Stir vigorously to dissolve the sugar and bruise the peaches, then leave to infuse for 4 mins. Discard the teabags, then set aside to cool completely.
  2. Fill 4 tall glasses with ice and the mint. Stir a little lemon juice into the cooled tea. Add a little more sugar or lemon juice to taste. Pour into the glasses and garnish with the remaining peach slices.
