Which pitcher for iced tea?

I've always made iced tea in a plastic pitcher--but have since learned that plastic is only for cold beverages, as hot ones cause the plastic to leach into the liquid.

So I bought a recycled glass pitcher. It cracked as soon as I poured in the boiling water.

Today I went to the housewares store and asked the salesperson which pitcher to buy. She recommended a different glass pitcher, which I just unpacked. It has a label on it indicating that it is not for use with hot beverages.

Now what?!?!
