What one-gallon pitchers are hot water-safe?

I'm getting into the habit of producing iced tea in quantity so I drink fewer garbage drinks. I learned a valuable lesson the day I bought a $3 plastic one-gallon pitcher at the store and poured hot water into it: the plastic softened and distorted right away.
I'm having trouble finding a pitcher to replace it, plastic or glass. I'm not picky here. If it has a lid, holds hot water, and doesn't melt/release toxins, I'm sold.
Or maybe I'm making iced tea wrong? Alternative methods involving a minimum of dirty dishes are welcome.
