Won't the Ice Melt?

I fail to see how this is supposed to work. Won't the ice melt as the tea steeps in boiling water? What's the stackable functionality for? Isn't just adding ice to a glass of brewing tea accomplishing the same thing?

"Steep hot tea in the lidded upper pitcher and then Flash Chill deliciously fresh iced tea by pouring the brewed beverage into the ice in the lower pitcher for immediate service." Yes, even better, you still have to pour it out into a glass! Now you have three things to wash!

I don't recommend pouring hot water into a regular glass then trying to rapidly cool it with ice... the glass can shatter - these pitchers are heat-resistent glass, I believe. I guess you could steep tea in a single large pitcher then add ice to it, but it is tough to add ice without splashing the boiling water onto yourself.
