Put 6 cups water into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add tea bags, cover and steep 6 to 7 minutes; then discard tea bags.

Meanwhile, purée half of the peaches and berries with agave nectar in a food processor or blender until smooth; transfer to a large pitcher with remaining fruit and mint. (Or, muddle fruit and mint in pitcher with a wooden spoon.)
