Don't use plastic jugs to cool (Poesha) tea, they are not safe to use with hot beverages. When heated cheap plastic release BPA ( BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. ) They are highly carcinogenic.

Use aluminium or stainless steel instead.

The same thing applies to water that has settled in plastic containers for long periods of time e.g water in plastic bottles forgotten in a car for days, toss it out and get fresh water that has not been exposed to heat.

No one is safe, aluminium leaches from anodized aluminium cooking utensils especially when new,effects are negligible though aluminium if ingested in large doses or overtime,causes mouth ulcer, ADD, depression and anxiety which is not scientifically well established. ....
