Peach and Mint Ice Tea

This is sooooooo soooooo good.
1 1/4 cups lightly packed mint leaves
3 ripe peaches, pitted
4 cups ice cubes
Pour 6 cups water into a pan and cover, bring to a boil over high heat. take of the burner add one cup of mint leaves,. Cover: steep 30 minutes to allow mint to infuse water. Strain mint tea into a pitcher, discarding leaves. Chill until cold.
Mean while, coarsely chop 2 peaches; place in a blender. Puree until smooth, adding a couple tablespoons of mint tea if needed to help create puree. Strain through fine mesh sieve, chill.
Thinly slice remaining peach. Add peaches and remaining mint leaves into glasses. Divide peach puree among 4 glasses. Stir in chilled mint tea and enjoy! I think I like it without the puree in it. Try and see what you think.
