Pitcher to withstand boiling water?

D-NY | Apr 18, 200602:13 PM     8

I enjoy making iced tea but can never face the idea of putting the boiling water in my rubbermaid pitcher. So instead I put the hot water and the tea bag in a pot, let it steep and cool off a little before transferring into the pitcher. Works well enough but seems like an unnecessary step. I don't need something designed specifically for iced tea, just a container that can steep the tea and then be put in the fridge.

Or am I crazy and there is no chance the plastic pitcher will melt?

Thanks
Debbie
