Bleach. Fill the container with warm soapy water and add a tablespoon or so of bleach. Let sit for a while and rub with a sponge. Repeat using more bleach if the stain remains.

My Mother used to put any stained plastic containers out in the sun, or on a really sunny windowsill. It may take a few days, but it usually got out stains and odors.

If it's tea, make a paste from water and baking soda, apply, and scrub with an old toothbrush. You may have to let it set a while before scrubbimg. After rinsing, most of the tea stain should be gone.

Fill it with water and one half cup bleach. Let set for 15 min. Then rinse with vinegar water.

I haven't tried it with plastic, but I use denture cleaning tablets to get coffee and tea stains out of mugs. It's worth a try--I get them at the 99 Cent store, so they're really inexpensive. And they also help clean the toilet... :)
