cleaning an iced-tea maker

My mom uses an iced-tea maker similar to a coffee pot to make tea. I've noticed it has an "old" taste lately, which I think comes from the fact that we mostly just rinse the pitcher part and call it clean.

Should I use a vinegar solution like cleaning a coffee pot, or is there a better way?
